Nut Rolls

Rated as 4.31 out of 5 Stars

"This is an old Slovak recipe. In Slovak it is called Roshky. The rolls are filled with lekvar, a thick, soft fruit spread. This is an all day project. This recipe will make 7 or 8 twelve inch loaves, or some dough may be reserved for lekvar squares."

  1. Prepare two fillings. Mix together walnuts, 1 cup sugar, and 1/ 8 teaspoon cinnamon. In a separate bowl, mix lekvar with lemon juice and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup sugar, 2 cups butter or margarine, and 6 eggs. Mix well. Add sour cream, milk, flour, yeast, and salt. Beat thoroughly until dough does not stick to hands.
  3. Form dough into 7 or 8 balls. Roll out each ball on a lightly floured board to a rectangle.
  4. Brush dough with melted butter. Fill with fillings. Roll tight. Place on greased pans, and let stand for approximately 4 hours to raise before baking.
  5. Brush tops with beaten egg yolk just before placing in oven.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
