Meet the Cook: The best way that I can describe these is to say they taste like a celebration. Cooking from scratch like this is an easy way to cut a few corners on my food budget. My husband and I have a son who's 7 and a daughter who's 5. -Darlene Simmons, Newfield, New Jersey

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add milk, sugar, butter, eggs, salt and 3-1/2 cups of flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl; turn once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. For filling, beat egg whites in a bowl until foamy; gradually add sugar and beat well. Stir in nuts and butter; mix well.
  4. Punch dough down; divided into eight balls. Roll each into an 8-in. circle; brush with melted butter. Spread about 2/3 cup filling on each circle. Roll up tightly into loaves; seal ends. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 50 minutes.
  5. Brush with egg. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Yield: 8 loaves.
