In shape for the holidays, these confections from Sublimity, Oregon's Darlene Markel are made from a recipe her mother handed down. "I still think her breads are better than mine--even when we're using the same recipe!" Darlene admits.

1 serving (1 each) equals 174 calories, 8 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 32 mg cholesterol, 150 mg sodium, 24 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, combine all filling ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Cool.
  2. For dough, dissolve yeast in water; set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add yeast mixture, milk and eggs; stir to form a soft dough. Place in a greased bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least two hours.
  3. Divide dough in half. On a well-floured surface, roll each half into an 18-in. x 15-in. rectangle. Spoon filling down the center of each rectangle widthwise. Fold into thirds so that the finished rectangles are 15 in. x 6 in. Cut each into 15 strips. Twist strips and shape into candy canes. Place on greased baking sheets.
  4. Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until golden. Frost with confectioners' sugar icing if desired. Yield: 30 rolls.
