It's easy to see why my family loves this sweet and satisfying staple during the holidays. Packed with warm cinnamon and brown sugar, everyone is a fan of this light and tender bread. —Brynn Rader, Olympia, Washington

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) hot roll mix
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 cup warm water (120° to 130°)
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • FILLING:
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped walnuts

Nutritional Facts

1 wedge equals 338 calories, 16 g fat (6 g saturated fat), 33 mg cholesterol, 251 mg sodium, 44 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 5 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the contents of roll mix and yeast packets with sugar. Stir in water, butter, egg and maple flavoring; mix well.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Combine first five filling ingredients in a small bowl; set aside. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into thirds.
  4. Roll one portion of dough into a 12-in. circle; transfer to a greased 12-in. pizza pan. Brush with a third of the butter; sprinkle with a third of the filling. Repeat two times with the remaining dough, butter and filling, placing each circle of dough over the previous layer. Pinch outer edges to seal.
  5. Place a small glass at the center of the dough. With scissors, cut from the outside edge to the glass to form 16 wedges. Remove glass; twist each wedge three times. Cover with plastic wrap coated with cooking spray; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 375°. Uncover dough. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 16 servings.

The yeast is in the hot roll mix!!!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 23, 2011

So far I have made it twice and will make it again tomorrow (Christmas Eve) to take to may daughter's for Christmas morning. We think it is delicious. A little messy to make but pretty when it comes out of the oven. I don't keep yeast on hand so it is handy having it in the hot roll mix.

The yeast is part of the Hot Roll mix.  Find it in the baking section of your favorite grocer.
