"This recipe is time consuming to make, but worth the effort. The rolls freeze well when wrapped securely with foil. You will have enough to feed an Army, but it will disappear quickly!"

I'd really like to see this recipe under "nut roll" because that would have been easier to find. When I made this today, I cut down the recipe to 14 servings (4 rolls), in case it didn't turn out. It turned out great. I left the dough in a ball to rise for several hours (my fast rising yeast must have been on strike). Then I formed the rolls and poked it with a fork to let the steam escape before cooking. I brushed the tops with melted butter when they came out of the oven. They really weren't much trouble at all to make on a small scale. Hopefully the picture I sent will show how good they look!
Nut Roll!! I am so happy to see someone put up a recipe similar to my grandmothers famously delicious nut rolls!! Of course, Grandma's is the best. And as soon as I get the exact recipe from her I will post it up here.
A classic! Fabulous and festive.
I made this and everyone said it was better than grandma used to make. Time consuming, but well worth the effort!
This is an excellent recipe. I was worried because the dough was so stiff (I did not use all the flour called for) and so slow to rise. The wait was worth it. Very moist, flavorful bread. I added some chopped dates to the filling, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Much easier to make than the mother in laws recipe from Yugoslavia, and best of all, my husband says it tastes better!
Just like Grandma made! I also cut this down to 14 servings (4 rolls). I might try to make this next year for co-workers instead of small holiday gifts! It's good that the original recipe is for 16 rolls!
I love potica but I never have any luck with raised dough recipes.
i really enjoyed this. it was worth the effort.
