Used pecans instead of walnuts. Really loved that it was not overly sweet and had a slight hint of lemon. Took Marianne`s advice and made two rolls also covered so it would not over brown. Delicious, will definitely make again. The dough came out really nice and I rolled with out the towel. Thanks for the recipe!

My husband just took a look at this creation as I was getting ready to photograph it, and he said it brought back many memories of his Croatian grandma's work! It is a good thing that I'm about to leave the house, too, because otherwise I'd sit and eat the whole thing! Well, not really because it is very big, as you can tell from the amount of the ingredients. This is one of those recipes that looks better each time you make it because it does take practice. I had a difficult time rolling it out to 30x20, but that's my fault because the only thing I did different from the recipe was to use butter rather than Crisco in the dough. I hope the submitter of this gem will post her photo because it is so MUCH better than this one. But I'll keep trying! This is delicious! Now I don't know if I want to give away part of it as planned! Thanks, StephaniCCP!
