Dissolve yeast in hot milk. Place in large bowl and add melted margarine and beaten eggs; blend well. Add 2 cups flour and mix well. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator at least 1 hour; may be left overnight. Divide dough into 3 balls.


Mix sugar and cinnamon. Put 1/2 cup sugar mixture on rolling surface. Roll out one ball of dough in cinnamon/sugar, turning frequently to coat with sugar, to large circle, 14 inch diameter. Spread with melted margarine, a very thin layer of jam, about 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup finely chopped nuts. With a pizza cutter, cut circle into quarters, then cut each quarter into 4 wedges. Roll each wedge up, starting at outside edge. Place, point down, on ungreased cookie sheet 2-3 inches apart. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, then remove the cookies from the cookie sheet or the rugelach will stick.* Cool on wire rack. Repeat with other 2 balls. Makes 4 dozen.

*If rugelach sticks, place cookie sheet in over for a minute or two to reheat, then remove. Scrape excess melted jam off cookie sheet immediately.
