June Meyer's Authentic Hungarian
Walnut Rolled Strudel
Every celebration throughout the year will feature traditional rolled strudels. Walnut and Poppy Seed Strudels are usually served side by side. They are easy to make, the ground walnuts cooked in milk and butter have a very different flavor from the roasted walnuts usually topping rolls and cookie. Nutty flavored, rich and buttery, this is a favorite family recipe made by many generations. Always made at Christmas time and for Weddings.
