“This is my favorite nut roll recipe, because it comes out great every time. I have included recipes for two different fillings (Pecan and Maple Walnut). Each of the filling recipes will make enough to fill 4 nut rolls. These are a nice treat for breakfast/brunch :) Prep time includes rising time.”
