    hcopeland's Note:

    We always looked forward to the holidays when we could get nut roll. Now our grandmas are unable to make them and it is not the same. This is the recipe from my Grandmother for nut roll.

      We look forward to the Holidays...for Potica. I like them filled with poppyseed filling also. These also make great gifts for the neighbors!

      This is my second year baking this recipe. It is very close to my grandmother's recipe, according to my father. The only alteration that I have made is that I drizzle the filling with honey after spreading it over the dough: a personal touch that my Croatian grandmother used to add. I also use one of the divided pieces of dough to make poppyseed roll; again, something my grandmother did. The flavor and texture of the dough is excellent.

      Wow this was surprisingly easy to make and delicious. I have to make more because everyone enjoyed it so much. I did do a few things differently. I followed all of the ingredients exactly but i let the dough rise until at least double in size. Then I put it on a sheet on my table rolled it out then I stretched it to make it as thin as possible (without creating too many holes, This dough is so easy to work with.) Then I spread the filling on the dough and rolled in into a long log and cut it into desirable lengths. Instead of letting the dough rise another hour I baked it right away for about 40 minutes. This turned out so good and was so easy i am going to be handing these out for Christmas.
