This recipe is not like any rugalech I've ever had or made. The rugalech dough I know is made with cream cheese, unsalted butter, confectioner's sugar, salt, lemon juice, vanilla extract, flour, egg and sugar for sprinkling on the rolled crescents. The filling is a mixture of sugar, cinnamon and ground walnuts with a chocolate (chip) variation, or apricot jam mixed with cake crumbs and walnuts. Raisins, maybe, but in the filling, not the dough. There are other fillings, too. There is also a yeast dough. I have both Russian and Polish friends (Jewish and not Jewish) who make them. None of us use cottage cheese and everyone uses walnuts in the filling.
