Cover, let rise about 1 1/2 hours or until double in size. Form into walnut size balls. Mix butter, sugar, cinnamon and walnuts together. Roll dough balls in mixture and put in a greased bundt pan, let rise 45 minutes. Bake about 40 minutes in a 350°F oven. Invert and turn out immediately on serving plate.
