Fruit and Nut Roll

READY IN: 4hrs 20mins
Recipe by Sharon123

Raisins, walnuts, pecans, almonds, and honey cozy up in a rich, buttery pastry roll. Great served with coffee and covered in berries and whipped cream. Plan a little ahead, as this must chill for a couple hours. Adapted from Chef2Chef.

well this is the first time I have ever baked in a slow cooker and be certain that your slow cooker is large enough to hold the dish, I'm just wondering if this could be baked sucesfully in the oven on a very low heat, and I might just give that a try then next time I make it, also I only used walnuts for this as that was all I had at the time, next time I am going to sub maraschino cherry halves for the raisins I think it would be a nicer presentation for the holidays, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten :)
