Ingredients2 pkg. Active dry yeast
1/4 c. Warm water (110. to 115 F)
1 c. Butter
4 c. All-purpose flour
2 Eggs, beaten
3/4 c. Sour milk*
1/3 c. Sugar
1/2 Tsp. Salt
FILLING: 1 lb. Ground walnuts
2 c. Flaked coconut
3/4 c. Sugar
3 Tbs. Butter, melted
DirectionsDissolve yeast in water, set aside. In a large bowl, cut butter into flour until coarse crumbs form. Add yeast mixture, eggs, milk, sugar and salt; mix lightly. Divide dough into thirds. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Take out one piece at a time from refrigerator; roll out on a sugared board to a 12x9-inch rectangle. Combine all filling ingredients. Sprinkle 1/3 cup filling on half of the 12-inch edge of dough. Fold over lengthwise and seal, forming a 12x4 1/2-inch rectangle. Pat out to press filling into dough. Sprinkle another 1/3 cup of filling on half of the 12-inch edge of dough. Fold over lengthwise, forming a 12x2-inch rectangle. Pat down to 12x4-inches. Slice 1/2-inch pieces down the 12-inch side of the dough.
Repeat with remaining two portions of dough. Twist each slice and roll in remaining filling. Place on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 F for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or cool. (*To sour milk, place 2 Tbs. white vinegar in a measuring cup. Add enough milk to equal 3/4 cup.) Joyce Hallisey Mt. Gilead, North Carolina Taste of Home, Dec/Jan/94
