I think of the Jewish pastry hamantaschen — the cookie baked during the Purim holiday — as the delicious pastry relative of rugelach.
Much like rugelach, hamantaschen is a tender cookie filled with something sweet and sticky and formed into a distinctive shape. Where rugelach can be filled with a raisin-walnut filling and rolled up into a crescent, hamantaschen is stuffed with a prune butter-walnut filling (or something equally sticky) then formed into a triangle before baking.
Rugelach might be found at any number of Jewish celebrations, but hamantaschen is specifically geared for the Jewish Purim holiday.
