I’ve got another recipe under my belt. This bread was really good and extremely simple to make with only four ingredients. I stuck to the recipe, but you can always add dried fruit, cinnamon or chocolate. I thought about trying a second version, but since it’s just Joe and I, we would have a TON of leftover bread to scarf down.
I loved how easy this was to make considering the rugelach took so much time. I spent ten minutes preparing the dough and it baked in the oven for 50 minutes. I ended up doing some cleaning while it baked. I loved that our apartment smelled of fresh bread, one of the best smells next to office supplies and onions. Yes, I love those smells. Ha!
The recipe suggests to let the bread completely cool before cutting. I tried to hold off, but eventually my mouth was salivating for some buttery Irish soda bread. Who doesn’t love warm bread? It’s the greatest comfort food known to man.
So, I ate some while I was taking pictures. No more holding back. Trust me. If you were in my place, you’d be grabbing for a bite, too. Even Joe was ready for a piece as soon as I took it out of the oven.
