Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is from a former neighbor. I consistently get 70-75 dough balls; maybe I make them too small! I'm not Hungarian. I don't chill my dough; I did that once and it was like rolling out rocks! To make sure my dough and nut filling are even, I make all the dough into balls, divide them by 4 and then cut my filling in its pan into 4 equal parts. I then roll out all the dough in the first quarter and using one quarter of the filling, I fill them all before rolling so that the rolls have equal amounts of nuts. I have never been able to get the crescent shape, but they taste great anyway!
