Teiglach, Traditional Ashkenazi Holiday Dish
Type Cookie
Main ingredients Honey

Teiglach, also spelled taiglach or teglach (Yiddish: טײגלעךְ, singular teigel, literally "little dough") are small, knotted pastries boiled in a honeyed syrup. They are a traditional Ashkenazi Jewish treat for Rosh Hashana, Sukkot, Simchat Torah, and Purim.


Tegilach date back to the times of the Romans who made strips of fried dough in honey called vermiculos. Italian Jews adopted the dish but it disappeared from their repertoire in the Middle Ages. In the 12th century Franco-German rabbis mentioned eating a dish of fried or baked strips of dough covered in honey called vermesel or verimlish at the beginning of the Sabbath meal. The name went through changes, being called gremsel and then chremsel in Eastern Europe. It is popular on Rosh Hashanah, when it is traditional to eat sweet foods made with honey to usher in a sweet new year. [1]
