Rugelach are the gem of delicatessen dessert. The little pastries are so dense, and varied in flavor and style, that they pack a serious punch and will sneak up on you if a box is left nearby. Those from Canter's Bakery in Los Angeles, seen here, are possibly the best anywhere. Bite sized, buttery, and filled with everything from chocolate to raspberry to apple cinnamon, they're guaranteed to ring in a sweet new year.
