Instructions
  1. Combine butter, cream cheese, flour and salt in a food processor.
  2. Pulse until they all combine into a large ball.
  3. Dump out onto a large piece of plastic wrap and form into a flattish disc.
  4. Chill for 2 hours in the fridge or 30 minutes in the freezer (this dough also freezes extremely well).
  5. Heat oven to 375 degrees F and line a couple baking sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats
  6. Stir cinnamon, cocoa, brown sugar and oil together in a small dish.
  7. Divide dough into two parts. Roll first disc into a circle. Thinly smear chocolate-cinnamon spread onto dough, leaving a 1-inch gap along the sides. If using chopped chocolate, sprinkle it on top
  8. Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, divide circle into 8 triangles (like a pizza). Being careful not to spill or smear chocolate everywhere, roll each triangle from the outside edge inward, forming a rugelach shape. Repeat with second disc
  9. Arrange rugelach on baking sheet. Coat with an egg wash
  10. Bake for 18-20 minutes
  11. Rugelach are best when eaten straight off the pan, but they can be served warm or at room temperature

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 trays with parchment paper. Flour work area.
  2. In a bowl, combine flour, salt and sugar and stir with a fork to combine. In a separate bowl, combine warm water, oil and egg.
  3. Add flour ingredients to wet ingredients using a fork, mix these until combined fully.
  4. Knead gently in the bowl for about 30 seconds, until the dough comes together.
  5. On your lightly floured work surface divide the dough into pieces. Roll these out with a rolling pin (if you are looking for more uniform, even crackers, cut these into desired cracker shapes - traditional lavosh crackers are bigger, to allow for more scooping).
  6. Once you have your desired cracker shapes, sprinkle with slivered almonds then brush with egg wash.
  7. Bake until golden brown in a preheated 350 degree F oven. The smaller your pieces, the quicker they will cook through; a whole round will take 15-20 minutes, while small rectangles require 10-15 minutes.
  8. If you are cooking a whole round, once cooked break into desired pieces as soon as it's cool enough to handle.
  9. Cool completely and store in an airtight container. Serve with a Middle Eastern appetizer platter.
Recipe Notes

If you want to mix it up you can top the Lavosh with olives, any spice you like, or even dates and figs to make it sweeter.
