This first BAKE-OFF® Contest winner originally had a unique rising method. In that procedure, the dough was wrapped in a tea towel and submerged in warm water to rise. In this updated version, we have streamlined the preparation of the dough and the rising method.

Ingredients

2 1/2
to 3 1/2 cups Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose or Unbleached Flour
1
cup sugar
1
teaspoon salt
1
pkg. active dry yeast
3/4
cup milk
1/2
cup margarine or butter
1
teaspoon vanilla
2
eggs
1/2
cup chopped nuts
1
teaspoon cinnamon

Steps

  • 1 Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. In large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup of the sugar, salt and yeast; blend well.
  • 2 In small saucepan, heat milk and margarine until very warm (120 to 130°F.). Add warm liquid, vanilla and eggs to flour mixture; blend at low speed until moistened. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed. By hand, stir in remaining 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 cups flour to form a soft dough. Cover loosely with greased plastic wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in warm place (80 to 85°F.) until light and doubled in size, 30 to 40 minutes. (Dough will be sticky.)
  • 3 Grease 2 large cookie sheets. In small bowl, combine nuts, remaining 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon; blend well. Drop about 1/4 cup dough into nut mixture; thoroughly coat. Stretch dough to about 8 inches in length; twist into desired shape. Place on greased cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining dough. Cover; let rise in warm place, about 15 minutes.
  • 4 Heat oven to 375°F. Uncover dough. Bake 8 to 16 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets; cool on wire racks. Serve warm.
