If you need a rich & tasty baked good to offer a hostess or to have on-hand for your own snuggly winter moments, this one is a surefire winner! For years and years, my mother-in-law has baked her heart out each and every Christmas, making enough pizzelles, almond crescents, apricot dandies, date & nut bread, Hungarian nut roll, cut-out cookies and biscotti to share with her immediate family and her 3 siblings. It's a generous handmade tradition from handed-down recipes (like Aunt Jane's nut roll) that my husband carries on for our family. He knows nut roll sends me to the moon, and he always makes sure we have a lot of it around!
I had hoped to post this recipe download on Friday, before those along the east coast had gone out to buy their "bread & milk" and were hunkered down for the weekend awaiting the snowstorm of the decade...thinking there might be some baking going on! But hey, maybe you have 7 C of walnuts waiting around your house for the perfect recipe, then you can just whip this out at your leisure!

What's wonderful about this recipe is that it makes A LOT - you'll get 4 nut rolls out of this recipe without duplicating your efforts like you might if you have to double or triple a batch of cookies. It freezes really, really well, too - just wrap it well!
