Date-Nut Twist


1. Combine dates, ¼ cup walnuts, egg whites, 3½ teaspoons Equal® for Recipes, and lemon rind in small bowl.
2. Roll dough on floured surface into rectangle 20 x 6-inches. Spread date mixture on dough to within 1-inch of edges. Roll dough up, beginning with long edge; pinch edge of dough to seal. Cut roll into 2 equal pieces. Place rolls on greased cookie sheet and twist together, tucking ends under. Let rise, covered, in warm place until dough is double in size, about 1 hour.
3. Beat egg white and water in small bowl; brush over top of dough. Sprinkle dough with 1 teaspoon Equal® for Recipes and remaining ¼ cup walnuts. Bake in preheated 375°F (190°C) oven until golden, about 35 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
