Ingredients

Pastry

  • 2 loaves frozen bread, thawed
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (10 ounce) jar apricot preserves or other favorite
  • 1 pound bag walnuts, chopped

Icing

  • 1 tablespoon Crisco
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • Milk

Instructions

  1. Pastry: Work the 2 loaves together. Roll out on floured board to 1/4-inch thick. Spread butter over dough, then spread preserves (you don't need to use the whole jar). Put 1/2 of walnuts on dough. Roll up and place on large greased cookie sheet. Let rise until about half, then make 2 long 1-inch cuts in middle of dough and finish rising.
  2. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. When cool, spread on icing, then sprinkle nuts all over.
  4. Icing: Mix together Crisco, butter and vanilla extract. Add confectioners' sugar. Mix well. Add enough milk to make it spreadable.
