    3 3/4  cups          flour -- all-purpose
    1      tablespoon    sugar
    1      teaspoon      salt
    1      package       yeast -- rapid-rise
    1      cup           hot water (125-130)
    1      tablespoon    margarine -- softened
                         nut filling-
      1/2  cup           almonds -- sliced
      1/2  cup           raisins
      1/2  cup           coconut -- flaked
    2      tablespoons   honey
    2      tablespoons   margarine -- melted
      1/2  teaspoon      cinnamon
 
 Set aside 1 cup flour.
 Mix remaining flour, sugar, salt, and yeast in mixer bowl. Stir in hot water and
margarine.
 Add enough reserved flour to make soft dough.
 Knead 4 minutes.  Roll dough to 14 x 8 rectangle.
 Place on greased baking sheet.	  Spread filling down center third. Cut 1 wide
strips from sides of filling to dough edges. Alternately fold strips over
filling.
 Cover. Place boiling water in large shallow pan on counter. Place baking sheet
over pan and let dough rise for 15 min. Bake 20 min at 375 or until done.
 Remove from sheet and cool on wire rack.
 Can drizzle with a confectioner’s sugar glaze, if desired.
 Fran’s notes: on a hot, humid day, I didn't need the extra cup of flour.  I used
a 12 oz can of solo almond filling instead of the one listed here.  I didn't have
any 10x sugar, but a glaze would have been nice.  Otherwise, I'll use a butter or
egg wash to 'pretty' it up.  This is definitely a keeper and I can't wait to try
apricot, etc.
