MAKING

7) Divide dough into 3 parts.
8) On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough into a 12x8-inch rectangle.
9) Use 1/3 of filling to place on each rectangle of dough.
10) Roll up each rectangle, jelly-roll style, from a long side. Seal the seams and ends by pinching.
11) Use greased baking sheets to place the pastries, seam sides down.
12) With kitchen shears, make 1/2-shaped snips at 2-inch intervals in the top of each pastry.
13) Cover the pastries and allow rising in a warm place for 1 hour or until double.
14) Place inside oven to bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden.
