2-Ingredient Dough Apple Cinnamon Rugelach


We loved the 2-ingredient bagels so much we decided to turn it into rugelach. With just a few more ingredients we made a delicious breakfast treat or dessert you can include as part of a healthy diet, no Jewish 10guilt included. 

We kept it light by using apple butter and cinnamon for the filling, but you feel free to add the optional glaze for extra sweetness at only 1 SmartPoint™.

Note: To make this recipe with regular flour, add 2 teaspoons (10 g) baking powder and a large pinch (about ⅓ teaspoon) salt.

  • Prep Time
  • 8Servings


  • 1⅓ (160 g) cups self rising flour, plus more as needed
  • 1 cup (200 g) plain fat free Greek yogurt, plus more as needed
  • ¼ cup store-bought apple butter
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

Optional Glaze

  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons nonfat milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place flour and yogurt in a medium bowl; stir well with a spoon until just combined and then continue to knead dough by hand in the bowl until smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes. If dough is too sticky to knead, add 1 to 2 more tablespoons flour; let dough sit 5 minutes.
  3. Place a large piece of parchment paper on a work surface; sprinkle with a little flour. Place dough on parchment paper; roll dough into a large, thin circle. Place a 10-inch plate upside-down on dough; trace around plate with a knife to cut out a perfect dough circle.
  4. Spread apple butter evenly over dough, all the way to edges; sprinkle with cinnamon. Slice dough into 8 even wedges, like a pizza. Working with one wedge at a time, roll dough tightly from the wide end to the pointy end; place on prepared pan and repeat with remaining dough to form 8 rugelach.
  5. Bake until lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, to make glaze, in a small bowl, combine sugar and milk until slightly thick. Drizzle glaze over rugelach before serving.
