Breakfast Nut Roll Recipe

Publisher Photo
This is one of my favorite recipes that I have been making for years—I even won a prize for it years ago. It's special not only because it tastes so good, but because it was passed down to me by my dear aunt.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in butter until crumbly; set aside. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in warm water; let stand 5 minutes. Beat egg yolks; add to yeast mixture. Stir gently into flour mixture to form a smooth ball.
  2. Turn dough onto a floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle. In a small bowl, beat egg whites and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, a tablespoon at a time, beating on high until stiff peaks form. Spread over each rectangle; sprinkle with nuts.
  3. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with short side; pinch seams and ends to seal. Place on a greased baking sheet. Cut a deep slit down center of each roll (do not cut through).
  4. Immediately bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Dust with confectioners' sugar while warm. When completely cooled, slice diagonally. Yield: 2 rolls.
