    Dee514's Note:

    This is my favorite nut roll recipe, because it comes out great every time. I have included recipes for two different fillings (Pecan and Maple Walnut). Each of the filling recipes will make enough to fill 4 nut rolls. These are a nice treat for breakfast/brunch :) Prep time includes rising time.

      This is an excellent dough recipe which my mother made for years and now I make it
      every year. The other review mentioned only seeing that you need 3 cups of flour. That
      is initially. After you add the third cup of flour at step 11, notice step 13. You need to
      keep adding additional flour, about a cup at a time, until the dough is just right. You know
      you have enough flour when the dough pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl and
      stays together and feels nice and smooth. I can't comment on the filling, though, because
      it is different from my walnut filling recipe. Mine is: Grind 8 cups of walnuts. Then in a large
      bowl beat 8 egg whites until stiff. Gradually add 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla.
      Gradually add the 8 cups of ground walnuts. Excellent walnut filling recipe.

      dough ingredients say 6-7 cups flour, however, directions only call for 3 cups being added. Now I question the entire recipe's quantities.
