As much as we love gelt and sufganiyot (doughnuts filled with jelly and topped with powdered sugar), there’s more to Hanukkah desserts than chocolate and fried dough. Hanukkah cookies are always a great choice, because you can munch on them throughout all eight days of celebration. Get creative with all sorts of shapes and flavors, be it a Star of David-shaped sugar cookie, or thumbprint-style cookies with gelt pressed into the center. If you’re hosting a Hannukah party, cookies are the perfect family-friendly dessert, and are easy to make ahead of time so you can focus on the latkes day-of. Going to a potluck? Buy or DIY a decorative Hannukah cookie tin, then pack it full of an assortment of treats. Rugelach, a traditional Jewish cookie made of rolled dough and filling, travels well and couldn’t be easier: start with store-bought pie crust, fill with apricot jam, and top with a sprinkling of sugar.
