For the Dough:

  • 1 tsp instant dry yeast
  • ¾ cup warm water
  • 3 ¾ cups all purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil

For the Filling:

  • ¾ cup (3.5 ounces) finely chopped semi sweet chocolate
  • 6 tbsp tahini

For Assembly:

  • 3 egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • ½ cup sugar


  1. Use an electric mixer on medium speed to mix together flour, sugar, salt, egg, oil and proofed yeast.

    Scrape the sides of the bowl and knead the mixture until a smooth dough is formed.

  2. Remove the dough and roll it out until it’s flat, then add your chocolate filling on top of the flattened dough.

  3. Cut through the dough and the filling using a pizza cutter, then roll each piece into spirals to form the rugelach shape.

  4. Bake rugelach for 25 minutes in a 350 degree pre heated oven.

    You can take a syrup glaze of your choice, and brush onto the rugelach immediately while it’s still hot.
