"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
Dough: 1 pkg. yeast 1/2 c. warm water 2 T. sugar 2-1/4 c. flour 1 tsp. salt 1/4 c. evaporated milk 1/2 c. margarine 1 egg
Filling: 1/4 c. margarine 1/2 c. brown sugar 1 c. chopped dates 3/4 c. nuts 1/2 tsp. nutmeg 1 tsp. cinnamon
Glaze: 2 T. margarine, melted 1 c. powdered sugar 1/2 tsp. vanilla 2 T. milk
For dough, mix yeast with warm water and 1 T. sugar. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and chill for two hours. Divide dough into two parts. Roll each into a 12x16-inch rectangle. Mix all filling ingredients and spread half of filling over each rectangle. Roll up dough jelly roll style and bring together the two ends so you have a circle. Make a few slits on the top of each ring. Let rise about an hour. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes. Cool and glaze.
