Roll out into rectangle 10 by 12 inches. Brush with melted butter or margarine. Mix brown sugar, walnuts, flour, and spices; reserve 1/4 cup. Sprinkle remainder over dough with raisins; roll up like a jelly roll. Place in greased shallow baking pan. Brush top with remaining egg mixture; sprinkle with remaining brown sugar mixture. Bake in hot oven 400° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375° and bake 35 minutes longer or until done. Cool. Frost with Confectioners' Sugar Icing (see recipe) to resemble snow. Decorate with "holly" berries and leaves cut from gumdrops.
