⅓ cup cooking oil
¾ cup warm water

Filing

1 cup cocoa
⅔ cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup cooking oil

Toppings

1 egg (beaten)
¼ cup water
¼ cup sugar
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Directions

7. Spread about ⅓ of the filling over the dough. Then fold the dough over itself towards you. Spread another layer of filling. Cut the dough into triangles creating a zigzag pattern. Tip: Try not to make the triangles too wide or too narrow, this give the Rugelach its unique shape.
8. Repeat these steps with the remainder of the dough and spread.
9. Preheat the over to 360℉ or 180℃.
