    Marney's Note:

    This was my grandmother's recipe. It's a walnut filled yeast bread that we used to have every year for Christmas. I inherited her recipe box but this was missing. At a recent family gathering my Aunt said she had a copy of the recipe and mailed it to me. I'm putting it here for safekeeping. I love this and am so glad it won't get lost through the years like so many family recipes can be. NOTE: I know that the directions call for egg that is not listed in the ingredients. I'm trying the recipe with one egg to start with and will update with the results from that run-through. UPDATE: The one egg worked fine, I can't imagine that adding more would make it any better so I'm changing the ingredient list to reflect the one egg. :)
