BREAD: 1/2 c. warm water
2 pkg dry yeast
5 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3 large whole eggs
1 large egg separated
6 c. flour (unsifted)
1 c. butter or margerine
1 c. sour cream
3 c. ground walnuts
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp melted butter
scalded milk

Dissolve yeast in water. Stir flour, sugar and salt. Add melted butter, 3 whole eggs, 1 yold and sour cream. Add yeast mixture and mix thoroughly. Let stand 10 minutes. Divide dough into 3 equal parts and roll out 14x12. Make nut filling: Mix all ingredients and add enough milk until spreading consistency. Not too thin or it will bake out of rolls. Spread dough with nut filling and let rise about 1 1/2 hours. Roll long side. Bake at 350 about 40 minutes. About 5 minutes before taking from oven, brush tops with remaining egg white (slightly beaten).
