Hungarian Beigli

This is a traditional walnut roll which is served in many Hungarian families at Christmas and Easter as a special treat. This recipe has been handed down in my family for generations. The preparation takes time, plus the dough needs an hour and 30 minutes of resting time, but the result is well worth the effort!
