Recipe's preparation

  1. Put all crust ingredients into the TMX bowl and mix at speed 5 until crumbly. About 10 seconds.

    Tip onto a floured board or Thermomat and bring together with floured hands.

    Divide into 4 equal pieces and press into disks. Wrap each in cling film and refrigerate at least 2 hours up to 2 days.


    Put all filling ingredients  into TMX bowl except honey and chop speed 7 – 8 till finely chopped. Add honey and mix speed 3 till combined. Divide into 4 equal parts.


    To assemble take one disk at a time from the refrigerator, roll dough to a 23 cm round. With a spoon spread a thin layer of apple butter onto the pastry round. Scatter ¼ of the nut mix onto a round. Place a piece of baking paper over nuts and lightly press into the dough. Cut dough into 12 wedges. A pizza cutter works well. Be careful not to cut mat if using. Roll from the wide end to the middle to make croissant shaped pieces. Place on ungreased baking sheet and return to the refrigerator. Continue with each disk of pastry.

    Additional option; each piece can be rolled in sugar before placing on baking tray.


    Allow at least 20 minutes for cookies to chill. Preheat oven to 180 C.

    Bake for 22 - 25 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on wire rack. Rugelach freeze well.  




Best done quickly if the kitchen is hot. Do not stop to take pictures.

  • Hi, I finally got the apple

    Hi, I finally got the apple butter recipe up. Had to make a batch so I could check the times. Tried it first at 100C but it needed Varoma temp to reduce down as needed. The Thermomix sure makes it easy as you do not need to stand and stir to keep from burning.  Enjoy

  • I was afraid I would get that

    Big Smile I was afraid I would get that question. I will add a recipe for it to the web shortly. It is sort of thick apple sauce. You can make these with many combinations of nuts, fruit and a spread. Even use chocolate and macadamia nuts with no sauce is great.
