Place all ingredients in your machine in the order recommended by your machine's manufacturer. When cycle is finished, remove the dough, knead enough to punch down and roll to 17X10.
Combine first three filling ingredients and mix well. Heat in microwave 10 sec. to make it spreadable. Spread over rolled out dough with rubber spatula. Get as close to the edges as possible.
Sprinkle nuts or raisins over dough. Starting with widest end, roll the dough into tight log. Cut into 1/2-1o slices. Place in a lightly greased baking dish with sides. Put in warm draft-free place and allow them to rise until double.
(I turn my oven on warm and place them inside. When the temperature light goes off, turn off the oven. I let them rise 20-30 minutes this way. Take out to heat oven to baking temp.) Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
