Baking nut rolls for the holidays is a Ladies Guild tradition that is 15 to 20 years old.
Dough is rolled out, walnuts ground and added and the rolls are placed atop the warm oven to rise before going into the oven. There are four baking pans on each shelf or eight in the oven at Boeke Hall. After they are taken from the oven, the rolls are placed on plates to be refrigerated until ready for sale.
