Cinnamon & Date Ring Recipe at
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Butter a baking sheet.

Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs, then stir in the sugar. Mix the egg yolk and milk together, then add to the sugar mixture, stirring in quickly with a knife. Turn out onto a floured board and pat into a 12-by-6-inch rectangle.

Mix together the dates, brown sugar, walnuts, cinnamon, and butter and spread over the dough, then roll up to make a 12-inch long roll.

Form the dough into a ring, joining the ends with a little of the beaten egg white. Cut large slits in the ring and brush the top with the rest of the egg white.

Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until puffed and golden.
