Nut Roll was made by both of my grandmothers. My maternal grandmother Anne Klesh Pare could speak Croatian. Her mother Rose Kovar Klesh spoke both Bohemian and Croatian. Rose immigrated to America and later brought her mother over Anna Kovar. My paternal grandmother Barbara Schwab Duft was from the Austia Hungarian region. She immigrated to America as a teenager on her third attempt to enter America she finally was cleared for Trachoma, an eye infection and she was free to join her family. Happy days both grandmothers spoiled their family with this treat!
Nut Roll was a family tradition, made for the holidays, special occasions and any other church function. This nut roll recipe is from Anne Pare's handwritten version. She enjoyed making and sharing this recipe with her family and friends. Both grandmothers were artful and masters in their cooking and baking. This recipe does not include their spice of love, please add your own love to enhance your family and friends nut roll. A nut roll was meant to be shared.
