Aunt Ruth's Danish Nut Rolls

Ann Sumpter


My late Aunt Ruth gave me this recipe years ago. Our family has enjoyed it many times. It is time consuming but the taste is great. It's great to freeze them and bring out when company comes or on special occasions. I hope everyone can enjoy this as much as we have.
