Nukhorns – Done!

I feel like a great weight has lifted. Yesterday I turned these:

Ruggelach dough balls

into these:

First half of the ruggelach cooling

In sort of two installments. I had 11 dough balls, of which I got 5 rolled out and baked by 3:00. We walked over to a friend’s Christmas party – a pleasant gathering of mostly librarians and teachers. It took about an hour and a half to do the 5 balls, so I figured I could finish the other six pretty easily in the evening.

And it worked. I was watching The Newsroom and eating ice cream and mint chocolate brownie edges by 9:40. I think there’re about 12 pounds of mini ruggelach this year – down a bit from last year’s 15, but I still filled the baby-bassinet-size Tupperware, and a 5 qt. ice cream bucket, and two pint cottage cheese containers. I took one of those over to Ann’s this morning. They’re going to be in California and will miss the party. We were going to walk but it was too icy.
