Nut Roll

H absolutely loves this recipe at the holidays. He can eat an entire loaf himself! His mom always makes him this for the holidays, but during the holidays we are always visiting family so I never get the chance to make it for him..so I decided this week with a bit of cooler weather here, to whip it up. He was so excited that he will get nut roll now and at the holidays!! LOL! Here is the recipe I got from his mom..very very very good!
It was hard to photograph to really show the layers of pastry and sugary nuts! It is all rolled up with a nice tender outer layer. Great for brunches!

ENJOY!

Dough:
4 cups of flour
1 tsp. salt
1 pkg. yeast
3 egg yolks, beaten
1 Tbs. sugar
1 cup of margarine
1 cup of cold milk
Filling:
3 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 egg whites
Stir together,and add a little milk to make it easy to spread.
Directions:
Sift dry ingredients together.  Cut in margarine.  Set aside.
Add yeast to milk, and stir in egg yolks.  Stir this mixture into dry mixture until blended.
Form into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and chill overnight.  

Divide dough into 4 parts, and roll each part into a rectangle 15 inches wide and 1/4 inch thick.
Spread filling over dough and roll up jelly roll style starting along the 15 inch side.  
Let rise for 1 hour.  Brush tops with egg yolk for a golden brown crust.  
Bake at 325 for 40 to 60 minutes.  
Cool completely and store in air tight container or plastic bag. Can be frozen tightly in saran wrap and foil for best storage.
Makes 4 long loaves, or 8 shorter ones.

    Yum! I LOVE nutroll!
    We make mass quantities of them in my family and then freeze them — it lets us eat them year round!

    My Pop-Pop used to make a nut rolls and poppy seed rolls every year at Christmas and they were sooo good. I haven’t had a homemade one since he passed away. I’ll have to try this.
