 Directions

*Sweet Dough: Preheat oven to 400 F. Combine 3 1/4 cups flour, yeast,
sugar and salt in a large bowl. Heat milk and water to hot 130 F. Add
shortening, stirring until melted. Add to flour mixture with egg.
Beat well, adding JUST enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead
dough, on floured surface, adding more flour as necessary, about 4
minutes, or until smooth. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.

*Filling: Roll dough on lightly floured surface to a rectangle 16" X
9". Spread evenly with golden crisco. Sprinkle with remaining
ingredients. Roll up tightly, jelly-roll fashion, beginning with long
side and seal well. Place seam side down in circle on greased baking
sheet. Bring ends together and seal well. Cut 2/3 way into ring at 1
1/2" intervals with scissors. Twist each cut piece on its side. Cover
with tea towel in warm place until doubled (about 40 minutes). Bake
at 400 F for 15-20 minutes. Cool.

*Icing: Combine all ingredients until smooth. Drizzle on top of
wreath.
