nut roll

Similar to the Slovenian version; a light, yeasty dough rolled thin, filled with a rich mix of ground walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, pine nuts, raisins, chocolate and honey and baked. Can also be made with other nuts—or even better, with a paste of poppy seeds and sugar.

Also spelled potica or potizza
