My mom makes the best nut rolls, but I have never made them. So this year I finally asked her how she makes them and tried to replicate them. Since she doesn't have a written recipe I had to try to figure out what amounts to use.
Mom makes her own bread dough but I opted to use frozen dough.
1 loaf frozen bread dough 2 cups chopped nuts (either walnuts or pecans) 3/4 cup sugar 1/2 cup butter
Thaw bread dough in refrigerator overnight
Remove dough from refrigerator and let rise for 1 hour
Mix nuts and sugar
Roll out dough in a long rectangle
Spead softened butter o n dough
Sprinkle nut/sugar mixture on top
Roll dough with butter and nut mixture into a log and let rise for 1 hour
