Personal Notes:
My grandma Dorfman made these rugelech when I was a little girl. Since she didn't have a written recipe, my mother watched her while she made these and wrote down this recipe. The last time my mother baked these was in Atlanta at my house, waiting for me to go into labor. My son was born over 21 years ago. It's been way too long since I've had these.
