Mini Chocolate Rolled Cookies Rozalach רוזלך

2 rolled chocolate cookies

A few years ago, I learned about a new type of cookie – Rozalach! Yes, it is not a mistake; that’s the name. These are bite-size rolled cookies made with pizza dough. The urban legend behind this recipe is that in a coffee chain in Israel, the chef didn’t want to throw away some leftover pizza dough, making cookies out of it. These cookies are best-sellers now, and the recipe has become viral all over the net. You won’t be able to get enough of them!

Rozalach Cookies are one of those recipes that seem difficult to make, but are deceptively easy. They are great with a cup of warm coffee or tea.

Servings: 40


  • 1 teaspoon (5 grams) active dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups (300 ml) water at room temperature
  • 3 1/2 cups (500 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon (10 grams) vanilla sugar or granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) canola or olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • oil spray
  • 1 small jar of your favorite chocolate spread like Nutella
  • powdered sugar for dusting


  • In a large bowl, mix the yeast and water.
  • Add flour, vanilla sugar, oil, and salt. With your hands (or a mixer), knead everything together for 5 minutes. The dough should be very smooth and not sticky. If it feels dry, then add a tiny drop of water.
  • Grease the surface of the dough with oil spray, cover it, and let it rest for thirty minutes. The dough should rise a little bit, but it should not double in size.
  • Preheat oven to a high heat 440°F/230°C.
  • Grease your working surface with oil spray.
  • Divide the dough into 4 parts.
  • Spray each part with oil and roll it into a very thin rectangle.
  • Spread chocolate on each rectangle, and then roll into a tight roll.
  • Slice the rolls into cookies about 1-inch (2 cm), place on an oven tray lined with baking paper, and bake for 7 minutes!! Cookies should stay white (they will look almost raw).
  • Powder with powdered sugar and enjoy.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Freeze the cookies before putting them into the oven. When ready to enjoy, bake them straight out of the freezer (baking time will be a few minutes longer).
  • You can use any thick spread like Biscoff Cookie Butter or Halvah.
