    My mom made these back in the 1950′s-1960′s. They were always very good.

      They do roll up well..if you have all the ingredients ready to go…..We make these with white chocolate…..before you roll…don’t have the chocolate too hot…it could melt the waxed paper a bit..and don’t over lap the waxed paper….makes it a teeny bit tricky to un-roll. East enough to make..kids can help with these….

    I have a good friend who gives us a plate of them every year for Christmas but I had never seen them before they were cut. Thanks for sharing the great picture.

    I live in NZ and could you please explain to me what ‘nut meats’ is? I presume the stick of ‘oleo’ refers to butter/margarine – could you please confirm. Many thanks.

      Estelle – Welcome from “Down Under!” Those are two sort of “old-timers” terms. I should change them. Oleo is just butter and “nut meats”, just used chopped English walnut pieces. The term “nut meats” used to be used to described chopped nuts like that, but it isn’t heard much any more. – Kevin, Editor

    2 questions…#1 What is Oleo.? I’ve never heard of it. #2 What is nut meats? I tried to find out online & all I found was vegetarian meat substitute, which doesn’t sound too good for a dessert!
