Large rugalah? (more like a big dense jam cookie)

I would like to find a recipe for this dessert item sold at Haymishe and is dense and can be sliced in bread slicer. At Haymishe they call it a large rugalah and also jam loaf but I can't seem to find any Google images of such a creation. It is verrrry tasty, and has a rolled layer of jam, cinnamon, and raisins trailing through it. Anyone have a proper name or recipe for this??? (photo is cut in get one guess at where the other half is)

    1. I think it's a Russian tea biscuit.

      1. Haymishe closed up last year because of fire, but I've tried this at both Haymishe and What-A-Bagel. It reminds me of a jam-and-nut strudel that's been layered instead of prepared jelly-roll fashion.

        There are tons of "strudel cookie" and "jam strudel" recipes on the Internet. I'm sure you could adapt any recipe to create a layered, rather than rolled, strudel.
