Directions (continued)

  • In a heavy saucepan, combine the egg, cream and salt; cook over low
  • heat until thickened, stirring constantly. Stir in the chives. Cool.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto lightly floured surface; divide in half.
  • Roll one portion into a 16-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Spread half of
  • the filling over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up
  • jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; pinch seam to seal.
  • Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet; pinch ends together
  • to form a ring.
  • With scissors, cut from the outside edge to two-thirds of the way
  • toward the center of the ring at 1-in. intervals. Separate strips
  • slightly; twist to allow filling to show. Melt the remaining butter;
  • brush over ring. Sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds. Repeat with
  • remaining dough and filling. Cover and let rise in a warm place
  • until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove
  • from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 rings.
