Ingredients

Directions

  • In large bowl, combine 1 cup of the flour and the yeast; set aside. In small saucepan, combine the 1/3 cup butter, 1/4 cup milk, 2 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons water, and the salt. Cook and stir over medium heat just until warm (120 degrees F to 130 degrees F) and butter almost melts. Add milk mixture to flour mixture along with the 2 eggs. Beat with electric mixer on low to medium speed for 30 seconds, scraping side of bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Using a wooden spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.

  • Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately soft dough that is smooth and elastic (3 to 5 minutes total). Shape dough into ball. Place dough in lightly greased bowl, turning once to grease surface. Cover; let rise in warm place until double in size (1 to 1-1/4 hours).

  • Meanwhile, for filling, in medium bowl, stir together walnuts, pecans, beaten egg yolk, 1/4 cup milk, 2 tablespoons sugar, the honey, and the 1 tablespoon melted butter. Cover; set aside.

  • Punch dough down. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. Cover; let rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, lightly grease large baking sheet.

  • Roll each half of dough into 16x12-inch rectangle. Spread half of the filling over each portion of dough to within 1 inch of the edges. Roll each portion of dough into a spiral, starting from a long side. Brush edges lightly with water; seal seams and ends. Place loaves, seam sides down, on prepared baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm place until nearly double in size (about 45 minutes).

  • Brush with egg white. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and bread sounds hollow when lightly tapped. Remove from baking sheet. Cool on wire rack.

  • Combine powdered sugar and enough water (2 to 4 teaspoons) to make icing of drizzling consistency. Drizzle over loaves. Makes 2 loaves (32 servings).
