  1. To make the pastry, mix cream cheese and butter (both at room temperature) with the sugar using a hand mixer. Add the flour and the salt, mix and form a ball with your hands. Rest in the fridge for two hours.
  2. Preheat the oven for 180 degrees. Mix all ingredients of the filling in a bowl except for the jam and set aside.
  3. Cut the pastry to four pieces, and work with one at a time (put the rest back to the fridge). On a well-floured surface, roll the pastry to a 0.5 cm thick disc and cover that with 2-3 tablespoons of jam (leaving a 1 cm edge around) and sprinkle 1/4th of the filling over. Press a bit with your hands and use a pizza slicer to cut into 8 slices.
  4. Roll each up and put on a bakind tray that is covered with parchment paper. Mix the egg and brush over the rugelachs before putting them into the oven for 18 minutes.
