I'm looking for a recipe or some help with nut rolls. My husband's grandmother used to make them and he said they are the kind that do not look like a cinnamon roll where the dough is flattened, filling spread, rolled up and sliced before baking. The nut rolls from his memory are more of a square of dough with the filling spread diagonally and the corners pinched together or overlapped.
I've searched google and pinterest and I am lost. Does anybody have any experience with these types of "cookies"? Would anyone be willing to direct me to a recipe?
look for pinwheel cookies
That's so funny because I'm on the same quest. I could have sworn that my husband's grandmother gave me the recipe a few years ago but I can't find it anywhere. You're right, it's not like the spirals you see on the internet. The nut filling is inside the cookies and totally covered in dough.
If I come across anything I'll let you know!
Ok, how about this? These look like my husband's grandmother's cookies.
It would also make sense because they are from PA.
Thanks all. I will check the suggestions.
You might look for filled cookie recipes. We have one in our family that has ground raisins and chopped walnuts in the filling, but you could use figs and pecans, apricots and hazlenuts, etc.
Try this cookies. I love them. Just add nuts if you want :) http://cookiteasy.net/recipe/cinnamon-pinwheel-cookies-313983.html
