Christmas Nut Roll


  • 7 cup flour 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 c shortening 4 egg yolks
  • 4 T sugar 1 can evap milk
  • 1 tsp salt 1 pkg dry yeast – (dissolve in 1/2 c warm water )

Mix together –  refrigerate dough overnight


  • 2 1/2 Lbs ground walnuts
  • 2 C sugar
  • 4 egg whites –beaten till stiff
  • 1/4 C scalded milk –cooled

Mix together:add more milk if needed for spreading consistency.
( I separate dough into 32 pieces and use about 1/4 C filling for each roll. )

Sprinkle pastry board with sugar and roll dough out.
Spread on filling,roll up and pinch and tuck ends into roll.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Tops should be golden brown. Watch that bottoms don’t get too brown. I use parchment paper to bake rolls on.

I sometimes save some dough to put poppyseed filling on. ( I just use a prepared filling )
Enjoy !
