Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat butter and cream cheese until well blended. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to butter mixture and mix well. Shape into four 5-in. logs; cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll one log into a 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle. Spread with about 1/4 cup spreadable fruit; sprinkle with 5 tablespoons walnuts and 1/4 cup raisins. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle 2 tablespoons over the top. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Repeat. Chill.
  3. Place roll-ups seam side down 4 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Brush with cream; sprinkle with remaining sugar. With a serrated knife, make 1/2-in.-deep cuts 1 in. apart on roll-ups. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a cutting board; cut into slices. Cool on wire racks. Yield: 4 dozen.
Raspberry Raisin Rugalach: Substitute raspberry preserves or spreadable fruit and almonds for the apricot spreadable fruit and walnuts.
