Product: Katz Gluten Free Vanilla Rugelech – $5.49

It is because of Katz Gluten Free that I have been introduced to the awesomeness of rugelech.  I had never heard of rugelech before, let alone ever tried it…until I was received some from Katz Gluten Free.  My life…my foodie world…changed.

For those of you who may be like me and have been in the dark as to what rugelech is…well…read on.

Rugelech is a traditional Jewish pastry that is eaten year-round, but particularly on holidays.  It is made of rolled up dough and a sweet, fruity filling.

These little rolled cookies are life changing.  Honestly.  I had the chocolate ones first as part of the sample pack I ordered from Katz when I first went gluten-free.  The cinnamon flavor I ordered on my own…and they were like eating miniature cinnamon rolls.  My personal favorite.  During a special, I ordered enough product to get a free pack of rugelech from Katz Gluten Free.  I requested the vanilla because it was the only one I had yet to try.

Wise choice.

Katz Gluten Free has yet to really let me down on a product.  I trust them and their food.  And the Gluten-Free Vanilla Rugelech is just as amazing as I thought it would be.  These moutwatering treats are perfect as a palate cleanser after dinner.  But…they are really good anytime.  In fact, I like to give mine a little 15 second warm in the microwave so they taste like they are fresh out of the oven.  The Vanilla Rugelech taste like a cinnamon roll…if it were made with vanilla instead.  Amazing flavor.  The sweetness tingles across the tongue with each bite.  It’s just…so delicious.  I savor mine, nu-spiriling them in little pieces and nipping them so that the time I am enjoying them lasts a little longer.  You can’t blame me.  Once you try them, you’ll want the moment to last as well.  These are fantastic.  And I am going to be sure to stock up on more of them…very soon!

When it comes to ingredients, I know what everything is that Katz Gluten Free uses in their products.  For the Vanilla Rugelech…it’s a mix of their gluten-free flour (potato, tapioca, white rice, brown rice, sorghum, corn), sugar, canola oil, eggs, orange juice, water, dry yeast, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, and pure vanilla.

Looking at it nutritionally speaking…these are cookies…little pastries of delicious gluten-free joy.  Treat them as a treat.  But do enjoy them.  Do try them.  A serving of the Gluten Free Vanilla Rugelech is 1 cookie.  This one cookie provides you with 90 calories and 3.5 grams of fat.  One cookie also serves up 30 mg sodium and 6 grams of sugar.  The Vanilla Rugelech also will provide you with 1 gram of fiber and 1 gram of protein.  It’s not awful…not at all.  I usually eat two of them though…so whoops!

Ah well…the goodness and the great flavor makes the splurge worth it.  These are delicious and amazing and I would buy them again in a heartbeat.  Any of the three flavors that Katz offers, actually.  I’m a huge fan. now, of rugelech.  And you will understand why when you give these a try to.  You can order them from Katz off their Web site, or check with your local natural foods stores.  Many carry a few of Katz products, and I most often see their rugelech.
