During my high school years (circa late 90s- early 2000s), I relied heavily on All Recipes as my go-to source for baking adventures. This was before I started my crazy cookbook collection, before there were thousands of food blogs to learn from, and when Food Network still played reruns of Emeril Live and dubbed Japanese Iron Chef.
I could only bake chocolate chip cookies for so long before I didn’t want to eat them anymore. I would scour All Recipes for new cookies I’ve never tasted or tried. That’s how I was first introduced to rugelach.
