  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter, sugar, eggs, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down; roll out to a 15x10-in. rectangle. In a large bowl, beat filling ingredients until smooth. Spread over dough.
  4. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; seal seams. Cut into 12 slices. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan or 12-in. ovenproof skillet. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  5. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over rolls. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  6. In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, extract and enough milk to achieve drizzling consistency; drizzle over rolls. Yield: 1 dozen.

"DAVID12846 : To seal the seam on a yeast dough. Leave the very edge clean when you roll it up, brush water along the clean edge and pinch the edge together with the edge of the roll."

"Since I love everything with an almond flavor I'm going to attempt to make this.

One little problem though... I'm NOT a cook and certainly not a baker. Mom never taught me. How do you seal the seams? Do you use a little bit of water or do you brush melted butter on the seams and press together?"

"I doubled this recipe and made both the almond streusel rolls with half and the other half was cinnamon. The almond rolls were devoured first, and though cinnamon rolls are a favorite in my house, they just pale compared to this recipe. These are fantastic! This dough is so easy to work with too. Thank you for the recipe-I have been wanting to try it since it came out in the magazine and finally got to it. I am so glad I did!"
