A favorite recipe I found several years ago. I was offered a piece of this at a local function. After I got my portion, I noticed that it was going fast, so I asked for the recipe. If you like applesauce, peanut butter, and raisins, this might be for you.

  8. After initial rise, punch down and roll out dough. Roll to 10" wide and about 18" long. Try to keep in a rectangle.
  9. Then cut into equal width strips, as long as your dough. ( I use a pizza cutter).
  10. Spoon a narrow strip of the filling right down the middle of each strip.
  11. Fold dough over and join the edges. Try to get a good seal.
  12. Lay all 3 strips on a greased baking sheet.
