Does anyone have a recipe from Pillsbury called "Orange Walkabouts"? It is a strudel-like dough with nuts and orange (I think) flavoring rolled up in it. Someone gave me a taste and said that's what they were called, said she got it from the contest Pillsbury had a few years ago. She promised to send me the recipe, but I guess she forgot. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here's one I found at the Bake Off Site that sounds like the one you are describing.

4 to 4 1/2 cups Pillsbury BEST¨ All Purpose or Unbleached Flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
2 pkg. active dry yeast
1 cup milk
1/3 cup margarine or butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup margarine or butter, softened
1 cup filberts, pecans or walnuts, ground
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. In large bowl, combine
2 cups of the flour, 1/3 cup sugar, salt, orange peel and yeast; mix well. In
mall saucepan, heat milk and 1/3 cup margarine until very warm (120 to
130 F.). Add warm liquid and eggs to flour mixture. Blend at low speed until
moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, stir in remaining 2 to
2 1/2 cups flour to form a stiff dough. Place dough in greased bowl; cover
loosely with plastic wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in warm place (80 to
85 F.) until light and doubled in size, 35 to 50 minutes.
In small bowl, blend powdered sugar and 1/3 cup margarine until smooth. Stir
in filberts; set aside. In second small bowl, blend glaze ingredients; cover
and set aside.
Grease 2 large cookie sheets. Stir down dough to remove all air bubbles. On
floured surface, roll dough to 22x12-inch rectangle. Spread filling mixture
lengthwise over half of dough. Fold dough over filling. Cut crosswise into
1-inch strips; twist each strip 4 to 5 times. To shape rolls, hold folded end
of strip down on greased cookie sheet to form center; coil strip around
center. Tuck loose end under. Repeat with remaining twisted strips. Cover;
let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, 30 to 45 minutes.
Heat oven to 375 F. Uncover dough. Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until light
golden brown. Brush tops of rolls with glaze. Bake an additional 3 to
5 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets; cool
on wire racks. Serve warm.
