Hi Gardening Friends

This nut roll recipe haves been in our family for a very long time my mother and my grandmother have been making this nut rolls recipe for many year at the holiday season. I remember my Mother making these nut rolls in the fall of the year she started to bake them and her other rolls,cakes and holiday cookies in September after we started back to school. She would make the nut rolls and freeze them in the freezer. Then she would get them out of the freezer for when she wanted them for the holidays. After my mother would let them thaw out from being in the freezer she would cut them with a knife and lay them on a Christmas plate with other holiday rolls and cookies. Then my mother would serve them to her family and friends that would come to visit us at the holiday season. My mother would serve these nut rolls after she had a meal as a dessert or she would serve them as just a dessert with the guest or family could enjoy with coffee. Or the young ones can have them served to them with a cold glass of milk. also you can serve these nut rolls with butter that you can spread on them.then sit down with your company or family members and enjoy eating them. Over a cup of coffee or a cup of tea and have a nice visit with both family and friends and make some lasting memories while you and family and your friends enjoy both talking and eating a great holiday dessert. Then years from now you will remember this and you will have lasting memories for many years to come. I hope you try this nut roll recipe and enjoy it as much as are family did. W hen I was younger and my family was all together and we enjoyed making these Large nut rolls.
