Maryanne Pohl of Allentown sent in information about nut roll and fillings in answer to Faith Kifer's request. She said, ''I happen to have the Slovak cookbook with the recipe for the Two-Hour Nut Roll and fillings published on April 23. On reading the ingredients of the filling, I noticed that it called for 21/2 pounds of ground nuts. This book and the recipes are from 1952, and the nuts back then were sold in the shells, which comes out to about one pound of shelled walnuts. I made the recipe on Easter weekend and had six rolls which I filled abundantly with one pound of ground nutmeats and approximately 1 to 11/4 cups of sugar. I add milk sparingly until the filling is of spreading consistency,'' Maryann said.
NUT OR POPPYSEED ROLL
1 pint milk
1 stick butter or margarine

Add the beaten eggs, again mixing well. Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture, knead well (more flour maybe needed). The dough should not be too stiff. Allow the dough to rise about two hours until double in size. Punch dough down and divide into four pieces.
