You will Need:
Dough:
*4 1/2 to 5 1/2 cups of flour
*1 1/2 tsp salt 2 pkgs quick rise yeast ( 5 tsp)
*1 cup warm milk
*1/2 cup warm water
*1/4 cup melted butter
*1/4 cup warm honey
*2 eggs
*1 cup raisins

Step 1: Mix and blend
Mix wet ingredients first and set aside. Mix dry ingredients and raisins in a large bowl, pour in wet mix and blend until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

Step 2: Knead the dough
Turn dough onto floured countertop and knead until smooth adding flour if too sticky.

Step 3: Rest your dough
Place dough ball in bowl, cover let rest in warm place for 30 minutes.

Filling:
*1 1/2 cup white sugar
*2 tsp cinnamon
*2 cups chopped apple
*1/4 cup melted butter
*1 cup chopped nuts

Step 1: Mix it up
Mix the filling ingredients together and set aside

Step 2: Section and glaze your dough
Cut dough ball into two and roll out each section until they measure about 12" by 18". Spread additional melted butter over each section (about 1/8 cup on each) Spread filling over top of sections and spread out evenly. (I sprinkle more cinnamon on top and I add some brown sugar, this is optional.)

Step 3: Twist
Roll up each section and cut in 1" to 1.5" slices. Take one slice and give it a twist. Place the twist in a greased baking dish. You will likely need at least two large baking dishes.

Step 4: Bake
Bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 5: Glaze
Glaze 1 cup powdered sugar with enough water to make is drizzling consistency (start with a tsp and add tiny amounts, stir until just right).
***Once the twists are out of the oven, immediately drizzle them with the glaze. After that remove the twists from the baking pans and put them in another greased baking dish or serving platter.
IF YOU WAIT TO REMOVE THEM AFTER THEY ARE COLD THEY WILL BE HOPELESSLY STUCK TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PAN.
