  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter, sugar, eggs and salt; mix well. Add 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. For filling, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl; set aside. Punch dough down; cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, divide dough into 20 pieces and form into balls. Dip each ball into melted butter, then roll in cinnamon-sugar. Place 10 balls in a greased 10-in. fluted tube pan. Spoon half of the apricot preserves between the balls; sprinkle with half of the walnuts. Repeat. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  5. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until browned. Cool for 5 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate. Serve warm. Yield: 20 servings.
