  7. Roll the dough very thin. spread the filling on the dough and roll into 4-inch diameter cylinder. Cut into loaves that will fit into bread pans. Cover the ends of each loaf with a small piece of dough. Cover with plastic wrap and let it relax and rise until not quite double in size. Egg wash the top if a shiny top is desired.
  8. Bake in preheated oven at 325 degrees F for 1 hour.
