Caroline Schiff's Fig and Sesame Brown Butter Rugelach

Makes approximately 36 small cookies

This rugelach has the addition of brown butter in the dough which adds a rich, nutty flavor that I love. They’re a little more labor intensive than other cookies, but so special and perfect for the holidays or a Hanukkah celebration. This dough works great with a variety of jams and fillings, so once you’ve mastered it, go wild. If you’d like to make your own fig jam I fully support that too, but the stuff right out of the jar is delish. You can make the dough a day or two ahead of time, and you can divide it in half to make a quarantine-friendly quantity.
