Kolacky - Nut Rolls

We make this for Easter, and the fillings can vary. Below is the nut filling, but you can also use poppy seed pastry filling, raspberry or apricot dessert filling. This is my great aunt's recipe (grandma's twin).

1/2 cup lukewarm water
2 packets of yeast
2 Tbs sugar
1/2 cup margarine
4 cups flour
1 cup milk
3 egg yolks
1 tsp salt
2 Tbs sugar

4 1/2 cups walnuts
2 cups sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup butter (not margarine)
1 Tbs evaporated milk
3 Tbs honey

1. Mix warm water, yeast, and sugar and let stand.
2. Blend margarine and flour as for pie dough.
3. Warm the milk, yolks, salt, and sugar, then add yeast mixture and combine with flour.
4. Cover and let rise double.
5. Punch down, divide into 4 pieces.
6. Using a rolling pin, roll out each piece. Spread filling, the form into roll. Put on greased cookie sheet.
7. Oil rolls before covering to rise.
8. Let rise double, bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
9. For filling, mix dry ingredients. Add combined milk and honey to dry mix. Mix thoroughly and scatter over dough.

Makes 4 rolls.
