      Valentine Coffeecake

      1/2 cup milk scalded and cooled to lukewarm 105 to 115 degrees
      1 package 2 3/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
      1/4 cup sugar divided
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      1 large egg lightly beaten
      2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
      2 sticks butter chilled and cut up

      Cinnamon Nut Filling

      1/2 stick butter melted
      1/2 cup sugar
      1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
      1/2 cup chopped walnuts

      Icing
      1 cup powdered sugar
      2 to 3 teaspoons cream or milk
      1 teaspoon vanilla

      In a small bowl combine milk, yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar. Let stand 5 minutes until the yeast foams. Whisk in the salt and egg. Cut the butter in to the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pour the liquid ingredients over the flour and mix lightly with a fork until the flour is just moistened. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 4 hours or up to 2 days. Remove dough from the refrigerator. Lightly grease a baking sheet. Turn the dough out on to a lightly greased surface and roll it out to make a 15 inch circle about 1/3 inch thick. Brush with the melted butter. Mix together sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the dough. Sprinkle with
      the nuts. Roll up jellyroll fashion. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Fold the roll in half so that one half is on top of the other. Seal the open ends together. With a sharp knife make a cut from the folded end lengthwise down the center of the roll cutting from the top roll threw the
      bottom to with in 2 inches of the sealed end. Spread out the two sides to expose the filling. Let rise lightly covered until puffy; about 45 minutes. Or cover and chill overnight. If refrigerated remove 1 hour before baking so that the coffeecake can rise and come to room temperature. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Bake coffeecake for 20 to 25 minutes until light brown. Remove and cool. In small bowl combine the icing ingredients. Drizzle over the warm coffeecake.
      Makes 1 heart shaped coffeecake.

      Thanks; Virginia
