Cover and refrigerate overnight. Take out one piece at a time from refrigerator; roll out on a sugared board to a 12x9-inch rectangle. Combine all filling ingredients. Sprinkle 1/3 cup filling on half of the 12-inch edge of dough. Fold over lengthwise and seal, forming a 12x4 1/2-inch rectangle. Pat out to press filling into dough. Sprinkle another 1/3 cup of filling on half of the 12-inch edge of dough. Fold over lengthwise, forming a 12x2-inch rectangle. Pat down to 12x4-inches. Slice 1/2-inch pieces down the 12-inch side of the dough.

Repeat with remaining two portions of dough. Twist each slice and roll in remaining filling. Place on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350?F for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or cool. (*To sour milk, place 2 tablespoons white vinegar in a measuring cup. Add enough milk to equal 3/4 cup.) Joyce Hallisey Mt. Gilead, North Carolina Taste of Home, Dec/Jan/94
