Directions

1
Add yeast to milk and water. Mix with 3 cups of the flour. Let stand for 1/2 hour. Add the remainder of the flour, eggs, sugar, butter, and salt. Knead until elastic (about 4 minutes). Let rise 2 hours until doubled in bulk.
2
Heat the ingredients for the filling together, blend well and let cool.
3
When dough is through rising, divide into 5 or 6 equal parts. Let rest on floured board for 15 minutes.
4
Roll out in long pieces, as if for jelly roll. Lay down your filling to cover dough completely and roll up.
5
Put on greased cookie sheets, seam side down (2-3) per pan; tuck ends under to seal. Let rise again, about 25 minutes.
6
Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
7
ADDED NOTE: Nuts should be very finely chopped. Best way to achieve this is by using a food processor.
