I'm trying to find a particular pastry I had growing up at Easter. According to my mother, my Czech great-grandmother used to make them. At some point after she passed away, my family began ordering them each year from a woman my mother thinks might be Hungarian. The woman sold nut, poppy and prune rolls through a local church. Sadly, the woman has since retired and our freezer stash is depleted.
We're tried several other nut rolls, mostly from Polish bakeries, but they are all very bready - the rolls I grew up on had a lighter, somewhat pastry-like consistency to the dough. They were very thinly rolled with a filling of a sweet ground nut paste.
As far as I can tell from googling, the recipe we're used to is more similar to the Slovak and Croatian varieties than the Polish.
Anyone know where I might find these in the Boston area?
