1 cup cold butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup butter, melted
4 med baking apples, peel/chop
2 cups sugar
1 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Confectioners' sugar, optional
In a medium bowl, cut butter into flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the sour cream and salt; mix well. Shape the dough into a ball; cover and
refrigerate overnight. For filling, combine the bread crumbs and butter.
Add apples, sugar, raisins, pecans and cinnamon; mix well and set aside. Divide
dough into thirds; turn onto a floured surface. Roll each into a 15-in. x
12-in. rectangle. Spoon filling evenly onto dough; spread to within 1 in. of
edges. Roll up from one long side; pinch seams and ends to seal. Carefully
place each loaf seam side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350°
for 55-60 minutes or until light brown. Cool completely on wire racks. Dust
with confectioners' sugar if desired.
