Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup oleo (butter or margarine)
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 4 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 egg yolk

Dissolve yeast in small bowl with warm water and sugar. Set aside.

Mix butter or margarine and flour. Make a well in the center and add egg yolk, salt and yeast mixture. Mix until dough is smooth and leaves sides of bowl. Divide dough into 2 sections. Roll each section out thin. Spread with filling (below). Roll and place on greased cookie sheet; brush with milk. Let stand for one hour.

Bake at 350 for about 35 minutes. Cover with damp cloth for about 3 minutes when they are taken from the oven.

Nut Roll Filling:

  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 lb. ground nuts
  • 3/8 cup sugar
  • 4 Tbsp oleo (butter or margarine)
  • 1/2 cup honey

Stir all ingredients together and cook until thick; bring to the boiling point. Add 1 beaten egg and 1/2 tsp salt gradually to about a cup of the mixture. Stir until well blended. Add this to the rest of the mixture. Spread over prepared dough.

Variation:

Can substitute poppy seed pastry filling for the nut roll filling.
