This flaky Easter Nut Roll recipe is one of my favorite Easter desserts. Make my never fail nut roll recipe for your Easter dessert.

There are many different nut roll recipes originating in different countries. It’s a popular holiday dessert in places like Slovakia, Italy, and Poland. Each is just a little bit different.

I’m not sure where this recipe originated. But, every year when we visited my aunt, she served an Easter nut roll like this.

It is basically a sweet roll recipe that is rolled out and spread with a sweet nutty filling. Then, the dough is rolled up to make a nut roll.
