25-30 gr fresh active yeast/7 gr instant yeast
2 cups lukewarm water
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 egg (white goes inside, yolk for egg wash)
¼ cup oil
6 cups of flour, heaping

2 tbsp yogurt (for egg wash)

Place the lukewarm water, sugar and the yeast into a bowl. Stir well to dissolve the sugar and the yeast.
Then, add salt, egg white, ¼ cup oil and flour, knead for 5-8 minutes, till dough becomes elastic. Place a plastic wrap on the dough  and let it rest for 2 hours in a warm place, till it rises up to double its volume.
Place dough on the counter and punch to release air. Then sprinkle some flour on the counter and try to flatten the dough in 1/10 inch thickness with a dough roller.
Sprinkle allspice and spread the crushed walnut over dough . Then roll it up tightly . Cut the roll into 2 inch wide pieces (, and press gently on cut sides. Then place them into the baking tray with baking paper. Leave it for 1-2 hours to rise.
Preheat the oven to 400F (200C). Mix the egg yolk and yogurt in a bowl and brush surface of the Walnut Bread Rolls with this egg wash. Bake for 12-15 minutes, then switch to 350 F (180 C) and bake for 8-10 minutes till they turn to golden brown.
After taking those out of the oven cover them with a clean cloth or towel to keep them soft. Serve warm.
