How to Make Nut Rolls


  • 1Dissolve the yeast in a little warm water and set to the side. Put milk and margarine or butter into a pan and heat until the butter is melted. Cool and add sugar, egg yolks and yeast. Mix in flour. Dough will be slightly sticky. Divide into 6 equal balls and wrap into a clean kitchen towel. I use two towels. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Remove balls one at a time and roll out on a floured surface into an approximate 12 X 18 rectangle. Spread with 1/6 of the filling and roll so it will be 18 inches long. Tranfer to a cookie sheet and tuck the ends into the bottom so the filling stays inside. I put two rolls on each cookie sheet. Cover with the kitchen towel and allow to rise for 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees until light golden brown, about 18 minutes.
  • 2Filling: Beat egg whites until they form soft peaks. Add sugar and stir in the ground nuts.
  • 3These rolls can be wrapped in foil and frozen separately so you don't have to use them all at once. To serve slice them into around twelve pieces.
