My best pal Pat, is a wonderful baker. As I am not, I coaxed her into baking for me. When I moved away I lost all her goodies. Her nut rolls are better than any I've ever tasted and I missed them. She gave me the recipe and assured me I could make them. Well, she was right and now I make them every Christmas.

Serves:
I make 2 rolls and since there is raising, resting and baking, I allow a half a day to make them.
