Snickerdoodle Noodle Kugel {And a Sweepstakes with No Yolks!}

SnickerdoodleKugelI would definitely consider myself an open-minded eater: I will try absolutely anything once. Okay, maybe not anything – I have my limits with certain, er, parts – but otherwise (and especially cuisine-wise!) I love trying new foods.In college I took a class called “Foods of the World” which explored the nutrition and cuisines of different cultures or groups of people around the world. We each had an end of the semester project in which we had to select a nation or group of people and do a presentation on that country/group and bring in food from that country/group. I, of course, chose Germany because not only am I German, but I also enjoy yelling random things in German. It keeps life interesting. However, one group decided to focus on Jewish culture and cuisine and brought in a kugel. Kugel is a traditional Jewish casserole-type dish served with extra-broad egg noodles and baked until golden. I’d never heard of it before that day, but one bite and I was hooked. It’s sweet, rich, creamy, and layered with lots of buttery noodles that I simply love. I never thought to use noodles in a dessert, but after that day I was determined to make my own version!DSC_1044AEnter the Snickerdoodle Noodle Kugel! Each thick slice of this towering kugel is swirled with cinnamon sugar and is coated with a rich and creamy sauce (similar to a dessert bechemal sauce) that’s simply divine. It’s all topped with a snickerdoodle cookie streusel that’s mind-blowing and will knock your socks off. The not-so-secret ingredient? No Yolks! noyolksNo Yolks brand noodles are cholesterol-free noodles that always cook up right and are consistently smooth, firm and delicious! They’re typically known for their Extra-Broad Noodles which you’ve probably used in your own dishes, like Chicken Paprika or Beef Stroganoff. But No Yolks can now be used in dessert, too, and you can up the health-factor by using their new Whole Grain Noodle variety which adds a nice, nutty flavor to this kugel. So just a fair warning: you’ll totally lose your noodle over this fantastic kugel… but it’s worth every bite (and terrible food puns) 🙂 DSC_1055A*adapted slightly from Tori Avey’s Chai Kugel recipe

Snickerdoodle Noodle Kugel {And a Sweepstakes with No Yolks!}
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 24
Cinnamon spiced and topped with the most delicious snickerdoodle streusel, this traditional Jewish Noodle Kugel gets a modern and scrumptious updating and will soon become a family favorite!
  • 1 pkg (12 oz) No Yolks Extra Broad Noodles
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups low-fat sour cream
  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 (8 oz) pkg brown sugar & cinnamon flavored cream cheese (if you can't find this, simply substitute regular cream cheese)
  • 1 & ¼ cups white sugar
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 & ½ cups snickerdoodle cookies, finely chopped into very small pieces
  • 3 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  1. First, fill a large, heavy sauce pot with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil your No Yolks Extra Broad Noodles for about 5 minutes or until tender but not overly soft. Drain the noodles, then rinse with cold water. Set aside. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. and liberally grease a 13x9" baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large food processor bowl, add the eggs, sour cream, cottage cheese, cream cheese, sugar, butter, and cinnamon and blend on medium-high heat until smooth. Pour the cream mixture on top of the noodles in a large bowl and toss to coat. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish.
  3. In another medium bowl, toss together the chopped snickerdoodle cookies, the butter, brown sugar, white sugar and cinnamon until coated. Sprinkle evenly over top of the kugel. Bake for approx. 50-60 minutes or until the top is golden brown and bubbly and appears set.
  4. Cool for at least 20 minutes in the pan before cutting, though the longer it sits the easier it is to cut. Serve and store leftovers covered in the fridge.

DSC_1053AThis kugel couldn’t be simpler to make and I love the authentic, perfectly spiced, warm & hearty snickerdoodle flavor throughout! This is definitely comfort food at its finest, and such a fun and modern spin on a classic, traditional Jewish dish! And hey… I won’t tell if you want to add a little something extra to make it truly decadent… DSC_1059AThe folks over at No Yolks would LOVE to hear what your favorite dish is using No Yolks NoodlesLeave me a comment below telling me your favorite dish using No Yolks and you will be entered for a chance to win a $100 Visa Gift Card!!  In the meantime, be sure to use this coupon for $1 off of 2 bags of No Yolks Noodles — great savings to make a great kugel!
