|1||Recipe basic sweet dough; (posted)|
|2 tablespoons||Butter; melted|
|½ cup||Chopped nuts|
|1½ teaspoon||Maple flavoring|
Roll out dough on floured surface to an 18 x 12-inch rectangle. Brush with butter. Combine sugar, nuts and maple flavoring. Sprinkle dough with mixture. Starting with 18-inch side, roll jelly-roll fashion; seal edges.
Place roll on greased cookie sheet; join ends to form a ring. Make cuts across top of ring 1 inch apart, almost to bottom. Pull slices apart, turning one to the inside, next to the outside, so that filling shows.
Cover; let rise in warm place until doubled, 45 to 60 minutes. Bake at 3750 for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown. Spread ring while still warm with Maple Glaze (posted ). YIELD: 1 RING Filling Variations:
Poppy Seed: Combine in saucepan ¾ cup chopped walnuts, ⅓ cup poppy seed, ⅓ cup cream, 1 tablespoon flour, 2 tablespoons honey and 2 tablespoons sugar. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Cottage Cheese: Combine in mixing bowl ¾ cup dry small-curd cottage cheese, ¼ cup sugar, ¼ cup raisins, 1 egg yolk, 1 tablespoon melted butter and 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind. Blend thoroughly.
TIP: Any one of the fillings given for Swedish Tea Ring (posted) may be substituted here, if desired.
Notes: This cookbook was acquired at a junk sale. It captured my interest because of the annotated comments beside the recipes. The original owner had made comments or just check marks beside certain recipes. I will include these as I scan. This one had no markings.
