Serves :The Shelef familyI love yeast dough cakes ! Ema made pecan rolls for as long as I remmber, and they are always a hit ! In Magdiel she used the pecans from the trees in the yard. When the pecans started falling off the trees, we all used to come over and collect them, and then Aba would put them to dry in big cardbord boxes that were then placed all over the house (on top of cabnets, under the beds). I remmber Aba speading out newspapers on the living room table, and standing craking the pecans with the red pecan craker and Ema sitting at the table peeling them. The smell of the pecan rolls baking filled the house !! To take a roll we just pulled one off.
