I don’t know that I have ever made Irish Soda Bread although I have eaten it many times. What a pleasure and a cinch this was to whip up!! And it was delightful to eat.
I found it stayed pretty soft while wrapped in a towel and then in a plastic ziplock – at least for a couple days — not that it should have lasted that long — except that we are a bunch low-carbers here!
So, the Rugelach was interesting. It sounded pretty simple – a lot of steps, but pretty simple. I made the dough one night, filled and rolled another, and sliced and baked the final night. Well, the first and last steps were pretty easy — the third not so much.
The first section of dough — I followed directions and rolled it out to 10 x 14 and then sliced lengthwise. However, once it was filled, it was very difficult to roll. I tried the best I could, but it wasn’t really pinwheel like. The second section of dough, I made more like a square since I thought it woud be easier to roll, which it was — still not perfect but better.
I had a ton of sugar topping left over!
Overall, they aren’t pretty but they really do taste great!!! Will be trying this one again, but may modify it so its easier to roll.
