    Default Candy Cane Loaves

    1 package active dry yeast
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup water (110 to 115 F)
    1/2 cup butter, melted
    3/4 cup warm milk (110 to 115 F)
    2 teaspoons salt
    4 eggs
    7 to 7 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

    1 cup chopped walnuts
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    1 cup chopped dates
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon allspice
    3 tablespoons butter, melted

    2 cups powdered sugar
    3 to 4 tablespoons warm milk
    1 tablespoon butter, softened
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
    1/4 cup chopped walnuts
    To prepare this recipe:

    In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water and milk. Add eggs, sugar, butter, salt and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6 to 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl; turn once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

    For filling, combine nuts, brown sugar, dates, allspice and cinnamon; set aside.

    Punch dough down and divide into fourths. Roll one portion into a 12 x 7-inch rectangle. Brush with some butter; sprinkle with 2/3 cup filling. Roll up, jelly roll-style, starting with a long side; pinch to seal. Place on a greased baking sheet; shape top to form a cane. Repeat with remaining dough, filling and butter. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 35 minutes.

    Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

    Combine the first five glaze ingredients; drizzle stripes over loaves. Sprinkle with nuts.

    Makes 4 loaves.
