Recipe by Sammy Mae
A recipe I would like to try - prep time is an estimate and includes rise time for the dough. I found it on the Taste of Home website, from Country Woman. Here is their description: These ruby-colored pastries will be the first to disappear from your brunch table. You can use apple pie filling with equally good results.—Christie Cochran, Canyon, Texas

Directions See How It's Made
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water.
- Add the milk, 1/4 cup shortening, sugar, 2 eggs, salt, mace, extracts and 2 cups of flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
- Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes.
- Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Punch dough down.
- On a large floured surface, roll dough out to a 24-in. x 16-in. rectangle.
- Dot half of the dough with 1/4 cup of shortening; fold dough lengthwise.
- Fold the dough three times lengthwise, then two times widthwise, each time dotting with some of the remaining shortening.
- Place dough in a greased bowl; cover and let rise 20 minutes.
- On a floured surface, roll dough into a 16-in. x 15-in. rectangle.
- Cut into 8-in. x 3/4-in. strips, coil into a spiral shape, tucking end underneath the coil.
- Place in two greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Beat remaining egg.
- Make a depression in the center of each roll; brush with egg.
- Fill with 1 tablespoon of pie filling.
- Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
- Cool on a wire rack.
