Nut Rolls

Well, I haven't made nut rolls for years now. I always feel that I mess them up, or I did something wrong. Well, this year is no different, haha.. I rolled out the dough to thin, so the bottoms got crunchy, but it still tastes like a nut roll!! So, that is the good part. They don't look pretty, but they still taste good.

The Menu:
Nut Roll
(1 of 4 dough balls)
(We measure in small coffee cups. 1 of 4 cups)
(2 out of 4 nut rolls. These 2 looked the best!)

The Original Recipe:
I got the recipe off of my mom. I remember her making them and they would explode out onto the cookie sheet. I remember the mess in the kitchen, and I recall her using sweetend condensed milk instead of evaporated milk, on accident.. I remember all sorts of mix-ups and in the end, it still tasted good. This is where I think I believe I will never be able to make a good looking nut roll, but atleast I still got the taste!
