In l964 ~ Alvin Lee Smalls, A South Carolina native who had recently moved to New York was working in the bakery of New York-Presbyterian Hospital.  While browsing a newspaper one day, he came across a recipe for rugelach.  Smalls loved baking, and would often practice at home.  He didn’t see the dessert as a traditional Jewish treat but rather as an opportunity to make something delicious.  He made a batch of rugelach based on the recipe, and after experimenting for six months, he finally perfected his own version of the unique pastry, leading to the beginning of a cross-cultural legend in the Village of Harlem.
