Apricot Pecan Rugelach

Sometimes a recipe comes along that’s so good that it really doesn’t need modification. That’s how I felt about Ina Garten’s rugelach recipe. The only changes I made were to omit the raisins and to use 8oz of chopped pecans instead of a cup of chopped walnuts. Also, unless you’re super speedy in the kitchen, factor in at least an extra hour beyond Ina’s time estimate.

These were a big hit with our neighbors and will definitely be filling our kitchen with their sweet scent again soon, maybe next time with raspberry preserves instead of apricot…
