Sugarless Dough Rogaliki (rugelach)




  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 1/2 cups of flour + 1/2 cup to roll out the dough
  • 2 drops of vanilla
  • Jam, any that you like



  • Melt butter in the microwave.
  • In a medium sized bowl,  add 1 large egg, 2 drops of vanilla and melted butter. Beat or whisk together. (I use a hand mixer)
  • To the bowl add, 1 cup of sour cream.
  • In a separate shallow plate, add 1 teaspoon of baking soda and  squeeze a 1/2 a lemon. It will foam. Mix together and add to the rest of the ingredients.
  • Fold in 2 1/2 cups of flour. (I use Canadian flour)
  • Mix it until the dough forms into a ball. 


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Cut the dough into four equal parts.
  • Roll out each piece into a circle. (sprinkle some flour onto your counter to make it easier)


  • With a pizza slicer, cut the dough into pizza slice shapes.
  • Here you can use any jam that you love. I used two different kind (cherry and raspberry). Put a teaspoon of jam to each slice and roll it in so the jam stays inside and the tip is showing, like a croissant.


  • Put the rolled rogaliki onto a baking sheet. (butter the baking sheet from sticking or use parchment paper)
  • Now you have two options, you could leave it the way it is and put in the oven to bake, or you could whisk one egg and brush on each rogalik and sprinkle with sugar and then bake.


  • Baking will take 30-35minutes. Let cool.
