    Servings and Ingredients

    ½ c. lukewarm water
    1 packet(s) dry yeast
    1 tsp. sugar
    1 ½ c. boiling water
    7 tbsp. margarine
    2 tsp. salt
    7 to 8 tbsp sugar
    7 c. flour
    2 eggs, well-beaten
    melted margarine
    mashed cooked prunes, optional


    1. Mix together lukewarm water, yeast and 1 tsp. sugar. Set aside.
    2. In bowl with lid, mix together boiling water, margarine, salt and 7-8 T. sugar. Let mixture cool until lukewarm.
    3. When margarine mixture is lukewarm, combine with 3 c. flour, eggs and yeast mixture. Mix well.
    4. Add remaining flour, 1 cup at a time. Knead until dough is soft and does not stick to hands. Cover and let rise to top of bowl.
    5. Divide dough into fourths. Pat out on a board into 4 long, thin strips.
    6. Brush with margarine. Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon, raisins and prunes. Roll up like cinnamon rolls.
    7. Place each fourth on a greased cookie sheet in a circular design. (Form each dough piece into a circle). Cut 1-inch slices about three-fourths of the way through the dough with a scissors or knife.
    8. Turn each piece back so filling shows. Let the dough rise again.
    9. Bake at 350 to 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Brush with margarine when removed from the oven.
    10. Can be frosted with powdered sugar frosting while warm, and sprinkled with nuts and lots of cherries.
