Maple Walnut Rolls | Country Cooking Recipes

6 - 7 cups all purpose flour
3 Tbsp. Sugar
2 packages active dry yeast
1 tsp Salt
1 cup sour cream
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup water
3 eggs, lightly beaten

3/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp. maple syrup 
5 cups ground walnuts

2 cups confectioners sugar
2 - 3 Tbsp. milk

In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat sour cream, butter and water to 120-130 degrees; add to dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add eggs and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes longer. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl; turn once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size. About 1 1/4 hours. Punch dough down; divide into four portions. Roll each portion into a 14" x 12" rectangle. In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar and syrup; stir in walnuts. Sprinkle 1 cup over each rectangle. Roll up each, jelly roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seams to seal. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Combine icing ingredients; drizzle over rolls. Makes 4 rolls
