Recipe Shared by Member: Annique Cree

I have this wonderful group on Facebook called:  Women Talking about Change.  This group of women are beyond wonderful.  We all try to share mouth watering recipes and this is one from one of our members Annique Cree.  

This recipe does make a lot so you may want to cut it in half.

Nut Roll

Nut Filling Ingredients

1 pound Walnuts Chopped
1 pound Pecans Chopped
2 1/2 cups of sugar
2 sticks of melted butter
2 eggs
1 large apple grated
1 teaspoon of cinnamon

First combine all ingredients together except for the butter. Add the melted butter and mix well.  Heat mixture in a large saucepan until the ingredients blend well and thicken slightly.  Set a side and allow to cool and make the dough mixture.

Dough Ingredients

6 to 6 1/2 cups of sifted flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
6 Tablespoons sugar
2 packages yeast
1/2 cup warm milk
1 cup sour cream
2 sticks butter melted or softened
3 eggs beaten

Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk and add a teaspoon of sugar. Stir and set it aside for a couple of minutes.  Mix the remaining ingredients together then add the yeast mixture.  Blend well.  Divide the dough into 4-6 parts depending on what size you want the rolls.  Roll one part out at a time until it is about 1/4  inch thick. Spread some of the nut mixture over the dough and roll up like a jelly roll.  Continue to do the same thing to each of the dough parts. Cover and let them rise for 1 hour.   ** A good tip about rising bread and dough made with yeast is: to cover the dough and place in your oven to rise.  Make sure your oven is not on.**  After an hour or until the dough has doubled in size, place in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes.

Icing (optional)

2 cups confectioners' sugar
2-3 Tablespoons Milk
1-2 Tablespoons butter

Combine everything together and drizzle over cooked nut rolls.
