DIRECTIONS

  • Mix ingredients for filling, set aside.
  • In another bowl, mix yeast, milk, 1 teaspoon sugar, and vanilla together and set aside for about 10 minutes.
  • In a third bowl, mix flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles course crumbs.
  • Add eggs, salt and sour cream, then add yeast mixture, mix and knead well until dough is shiny (about 15 minutes).
  • Divide into 4 balls. Roll out each ball to about 9" x 13" and spoon 1/4 of the nut filling over each.
  • Starting at the narrow end, roll dough into a loaf. Pinch the ends and fold them under. With the seam side down, let loaves rise in greased pan for 2 hours.
  • Brush with beaten egg and bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes.
