Rugelach:a tragedy, happiness, and satisfaction all rolled into one.

What is this?

Yah, We don't really know either.

Josh spent over three hours trying to solve this puzzle for his Cell Biology Class. It was a disaster.
It was supposed to be a cell, but it didn't seem to fit together.

It was so nice of his teacher to assign a project three days before the final. Forget studying, I have to put together an idiotic puzzle.

He was so frustrated that I thought we needed a Starbucks break. I hesitate to say coffee because I am sure that there was very little in my gingerbread latte. But, it was heaven in a cup.

(Don't tell anyone we went to Starbucks.)

We drove around the area pining at the Christmas tree lights. I cannot wait until we have a house to over-decorate with tacky decorations.

While Josh continued to work on his puzzle, I made Rugelach from Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook. I could not have asked for anything better. These Jewish treats are made with a cream cheese dough.

I started by rolling out the dough, and adding the toppings: apricot jelly, chocolate chip bits, and crushed walnuts.

Then I assembled them into little crescent shapes on my stone.

The finish product was delicious. I must say that the ones with the all three toppings where the best.

The evening ended with a Monte Cristo Sandwich and apple slices. These sandwiches were made by assembling ham, Swiss cheese, and homemade honey mustard between two pieces of whole wheat bread. I dredged these in a milk and egg mixture and toasted them in a skillet. It was very fulfilling, although Josh is not a big fan of ham.
