  1. Set oven to 200 degrees and keep oven on for about 2 minutes then turn oven off (this will create a perfect temperature for rising dough) or you can rise the dough at room temperature if desired.
  2. Shape the prepared dough into balls (do this after the first rising of your dough).
  3. Place the dough balls in two 9-inch buttered round cake pans.
  4. Cover the pans with a clean tea towel; if you are oven-rising place in oven to rise for about 30-45 minutes or until doubled.
  5. Meanwhile in a bowl mix together the pecans or walnuts with melted butter, raisins, dark brown sugar and apple pie spice.
  6. Remove the dough balls from the oven and set oven to 375 degrees.
  7. Sprinkle the mixture evenly on top of the dough balls.
  8. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown; cool.
  9. In a bowl whisk together the powdered sugar with almond extract and whipping cream (adding in more cream if necessary to achieve desired drizzling consistancy).
  10. Drizzle the glaze over the rolls.
