Easy Cheese Rugelach – 3 ways

2 Malawach rounds 
3/4 cup marscapone cheese (or cream cheese)
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup sugar 
1 tsp vanilla 
1 egg 
1 tsp silan .
Optional fillings:
– halva and pistachios
– Nutella and milk chocolate chips
– Dulce de leche (store bought) .
Mix together cheese, egg, sugar and vanilla. 
Remove Malawach dough from freezer. As soon as it’s soft enough to roll out (not totally thawed), roll it out as thinly as you can into a large circle, on a piece of heavily floured parchment (flour your rolling pin as well, Malawach is very very sticky). Spread a very thin layer of the cheese mixture onto the dough, gently, trying your best not to let it tear. 
For the halva-pistachio, sprinkle halva and chopped pistachios around the edges of the circle of dough. 
For the Nutella, put in the microwave for 15-20 seconds to soften and spread over cheese layer. Sprinkle chocolate chips around the edges of the dough. 
For the dulce de leche, put into the microwave to soften and spread over cheese layer. .
Cut circle of dough into 12-14 pieces, like you would cut up a pizza. .
Roll up each triangle to form a pastry. Beat egg with silan and brush onto pastries. . 
Bake at 375°F for 15 minutes.
