Number of Servings: 36

Ingredients

    Pastry:

    3 cups Flour
    4 tbsp butter or Crisco
    1 tbsp Lard
    4 tbsp sugar with a little salt
    2 cakes yeast
    3 egg yolks
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 cup lukewarm water

    Filling:
    1 cup sugar
    3 egg whites
    1 pound ground walnuts

Tips

1. the dough is REALLY sticky, so pour some flour over it and on your hands before trying to punch down or roll out.
2. I split the dough into 3 loaves so that they cook faster.
3. Make sure to brush the loaves with the egg yolk as instructed, this prevents them from browning too quickly.


Directions

This is the original text of the recipe, written by a friend of my great-grandmother's. It is a traditional Romanian dessert.

Put flour in pan, melt butter. Let cool. Heat milk and water to lukewarm. Put yeast in cup with warm water. Mix all together with flour and the rest of the ingredients. Let raise for 1 hour, punch down, and let raise again. Break dough in half, roll out to 1/2 inch thickness (each half).

Lay on the filling and start rolling as for jelly roll; tuck ends in. Place in bread pan with tucked ends down. Brush with a mixture of a little egg yolk, sugar, and a little milk before placing in oven.

Bake 45 mins to 1 hour at 375.

Filling:

Mix 1 cup sugar with 1 pound ground walnuts in the whites of 3 eggs. Egg whites should be beaten until just before they get stiff. Poppy seeds can also be used for filling.

Serving Size: makes 3 15" by 3" loaves, or 2 really huge loaves

Number of Servings: 36
