Thursday's Temptation

Thursday's Temptation

Recall, when we last left the girls
(Bruna&Diletta), Diletta decided to 'give up' coffee, by drinking only pure coffee (see post below) & we all agreed she was 
reasonably insane. 

Bruna, who drinks just as much coffee,
(if not more) as Diletta
has decided to 'give up'
sweets instead.

(On day 3 of 40, of a sweet-less life):

Diletta, you have no idea how
good it feels not having to eat sweets

It's liberating.





Why don't you give up coffee
then if it's so easy?

Bruna, angered by the suggestion:

Oooooh no, I'm not giving up my coffee.
I don't need freedom from that.


Hmmm, so what exactly
has happened Here?

Self-created suppression 
plus self-determined salvation. 

Why bother?

Save us from OurSelves.

At any rate, just to be a little villain, Diletta left a batch sweet-as-can-be homemade rugelach on the staff room table to tempt Ms.Bruna into bad behavior. Let's see if She'll take the bait...


1 cup butter
2 cups flour
1 egg yoke, beaten
1/2 sour cream
1/2 cup Apricot Jam
1/2 shredded coconut
1/4 finely chopped pecans

Cutter butter into flour until mixture resembles fine crumbs.

Combine egg yolk and sour cream; blend into flour mixture.

Chill dough several hours or overnight.

Divide dough into four equal portions, keeping each part refrigerated until ready to use.

Roll each part into a thin circle on lightly floured surface. Spread with 2 Tbsp of Apricot jam, sprinkle with 2 Tbsp coconut and 1 Tbsp of nuts. 

Cut into 12 wedges.
Starting from the wide end, roll each wedge into a crescent. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 F for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.

Let Cool

& Enjoy!
