Where does the stuffed roll or rugelach come from?

Rugelach has been a popular Jewish pastry for centuries.

The crescent-shaped filled pastry was originally made from yeast dough and filled with fruit jam, poppy seed filling or ground nuts.

Today, rugelach is the most popular sweet pastry both in the American Jewish community and in Israel. But thanks to “travelling”, rugelach differs greatly on individual continents.

There are many examples in Jewish history where foods traveled across countries and continents, changing tastes and adapting production techniques to the environment. This also happened with rugelach, which traveled from east to west and reached the USA from Central Europe, where it was so modified along the way that it only matches the name of the traditional Israeli rugelach.
