My Grandmother sent me a few of her recipes. She’s made amazing dishes over the years, which I enjoyed since childhood. I was finally able to recreate one of her recipes. For this Thanksgiving dinner, which my husband and I hosted at our house, I made my version of my Grandmother’s rogaliki for dessert. Rogaliki (a Russian term) could most closely be equated to crescents. (But sooooo much better).
The recipe is simple. The rogaliki I made were slightly different from the recipe my Grandmother sent and I will share my recipe here.
For the dough you’ll need the following:
3 egg yolks
1 stick of margerine
100 grams of sour cream
Flour (as much as needed to get the dough consistency)
Raspberry preserves (for the filling)
Mix the egg yolks, margerine and sour cream with flour until the mixture has dough consistency. Separate the dough into 3 or 4 balls and refrigerate for about 3 hours or over night. Roll out the dough into a thin circle (using additional flour, to prevent the dough from sticking). Cut the dough into 16 triangles. Place a small amount of raspberry preserves onto the wide side of the triangle and roll away from you to create rogaliki. Repeat with the rest of the dough balls. Place rogaliki on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray and bake for about 15 minutes at 375 Degrees Fahrenheit.
Once rogaliki are out of the oven, sprinkle them with powdered sugar and serve once they cool off.
Enjoy these as a tasty dessert or a morning pastry!
