Vegan Rugelach Cookies Filled With Jam (Cornulete de post)

These little delicious croissants are one of the many memories of my childhood. In Romanian, we call them cornuleţe and they are commonly baked around Christmas time. They are incredibly tender and will delicately fall apart in your mouth. This time, I decided to fill them with jam, but you can also use nuts, chocolate spread or Turkish delight. They are so easy to make and delicious that you have no other choice than to give them a try!

Servings 48 small croissants

Ingredients
  

  • 150 ml canola oil
  • 100 ml unsweetened soy milk warm
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • The zest of 1/2 orange optional
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups white all-purpose flour
  • Jam of choice for the filling
  • Powdered sugar to decorate

Instructions
 

  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the oil, soy milk, yeast, vinegar, vanilla extract, zest and salt to avoid any lumps.
  • Using a spoon, slowly start incorporating the flour until a cohesive ball is formed. Then, continue kneading with your hand until the dough becomes smooth, soft and does not stick to your fingers anymore. You may not need all the flour. Keep it aside for later.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic foil and place the dough in the refrigerator to chill for one hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Remove the dough from the refrigerator and knead it for a few extra minutes over a slightly floured surface.
  • Using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, cut the dough in 4. Take a first ball of dough and roll it into a round shape, about 20 cm big. Cut the dough in 4, then 8 and finally 12 to obtain 12 triangles as equal as possible. Place about 1/2 tsp of jam at the top of each triangle and then loosely roll them towards their tip. Place the rolled cookies on a baking tray covered with parchment paper as you go on. Repeat these steps with the remaining 3 balls until all the cookies are ready.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove the cookies from the tray and place them on a cooling rack.
  • Allow them to cool down for a few minutes and then roll them into powdered sugar. Enjoy!
