Ok all- this one is unbelieveable and unlike my usual recipes a ton of work.  My mom made this when I was growing up and I would look forward to it every year!
So I used 1 pack of rapid rise yeast
6 cups sifted flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 pound butter
3 tbsp sugar
3 eggs
1/2 pint sour cream
1/2 warm milk

Dissolve yeast in warm milk. (120-130 degrees- check individual packs to make sure it isn't too hot)

Add cup of flour- add sour cream and add flour. Then add sugar, butter and eggs and keep on adding flour until its gone.  When it is kneaded well set aside and let rise about 3 times- cover over with towel. (let it rise, beat it down, rise again 3 times). 
The dough is done rising when you stick two fingers about 1/2 in inside and the dough doesn't come back up.
2 1/2 to 3 pounds walnuts- grind nuts fine
2 cups sugar or to taste
3 whole eggs
moisten with 1/2 cup of milk or as much as needed to spread nice so that it is not running.
Once dough has risen 3 times divide into 6 sections and roll out flat. Cover flattened dough with filling and roll. Make sure your dough is thick enough (some of mine were too thin and then broke open during baking- doesn't affect the taste- just the look :) ) Then bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. (Until golden brown)

Allow some time to cool on a cooling rack and enjoy!

Happy Cooking!
