The sticky is so this post stays on top for a while. The new year is the Jewish new year, and if you’re getting your holiday on, you know you want baked goods. And look! We have a fun new logo for my now traditional “bake sale for charity.” This season, the charity in question is the Susan G. Komen Race For the Cure, which raises money to help find a cure for breast cancer and help poor women afford healthcare. For a happy blog, I’ve mentioned too many times that this is an issue that effects me deeply and has changed my life forever.

This time, I’m doing the race in Denver. Because I like mountains and I like my friends. Who are also going to Denver. Sadly, due to health and personal issues, I haven’t been able to train and so I may end up walking. But they still give your money to cure cancer, don’t worry. And my team is called Team Fabulous!, so I’m sure it will be fabulous either way, with an exclamation point, even.

I’m not saying my cookies will save the world, but they will save your day. Because rugelach are just that good. If you have never tasted rugelach, or mine in particular, they are rolled, pastry cookies that are made with butter, fruity filling, chocolate, cinnamon, and a healthy dose of awesome. I make them in raspberry/chocolate, but for your convenience, apricot/chocolate is also on offer. No nuts are involved.

(at right, raspberry rugelach in action)

So! Here is how to donate and get rugelach:

1. Donate at least $15 to my Komen/Race For the Cure fund. It is tax deductible.

Most importantly, THANK YOU! And a sweet new year.

PS, this is my 500th post. How well did that work out?

    Yay for cookies! And for good causes!

    I can attest to the y word-iness of Becca’s baked goods, so buy now and buy often people!

    Sweet! (no pun intended)

    Can I this?

  3. Becca says:

    Thanks, KP!

    Lydia, did you leave a verb out of there? I don’t want to answer until I’m sure what it is. 😀

  4. Deas says:

    I suspect there may be one nut involved.

    Hey, maybe it’s that missing one?

    Seriously, it’s FABULOUS to be able to pull one or two out of the freezer to nosh on over the winter months.

    I’m doing the Milwaukee walk/run in October … I’m training to run! 🙂

    (I just looked at the Denver site … LOVE the team name “The Tittihood”!! 🙂 But I’ll donate to you.)

  6. kb says:

    oops, just correcting the Milwaukee date: it’s Sept 28.

    Mmmm, rugelach! I never thought of freezing them. But I’m still having them sent to my sister. She’s a lot thinner than I am. I’d eat them all in one sitting. Becca makes the bestest rugelach in the world.

  8. Becca says:

    They do, kb? Good to know! I’ve never tried.

    And good for you. And the Tittihood, whoever they are.

    Irish, thanks! I’ll try to send another note from Jeter and A-Rod. They should have plenty of time to bake rugelach soon.

  9. Irishcardinal says:

    Yeah, poor things. Jeter has never had October off. He’ll have plenty of time to work on his Halloween costume this year.
