   Dissolve the sugar in the water and milk, then add the yeast, stirring to
   dissolve, and let sit for 10 minutes.  Combine the flour, butter (which
   has been cut into small pieces), and the yeast mixture, kneading until the
   dough forms a smooth ball.  Or, in a food processor with the machine
   running, add the butter to the flour, then add the yeast mixture.  Process
   until the dough forms a ball, adding flour or milk as necessary.  Let rest
   for a few minutes, then process 1 minute more.  Place in a lightly oiled
   bowl, turing once to oil the top, cover and let rise until double in bulk.
   
   POPPY SEED FILLING:
   
   Pour boiling water over the seeds, let stand for 5 minutes, pour off the
   water and repeat, draining well.  Cover with the milk in a saucepan and
   bring to a boil, then strain.  Grind with the steel blade in a blender or
   processor until the seeds release the milk and turn white, then add the
   sugar, honey, and butter.  Cook in a heavy skillet for 1 minute over high
   heat.  Cool.  When cool, add the egg whites and zests, blending well.
   
   On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a long rectangle about
   1-inch thick.  Spread the filling evenly over the dough stopping 1-inch
   from one long edge and roll up, making sure that the filling is sealed
   inside.  Place on a non-stick baking sheet, seam side down.  Bake in a
   preheated 350 Degree F. oven for 35 to 40 minutes.  Brush with thegg laze
   and cool on a wire rack.
