      Try the Oakmont Bakery. They've won all sorts of awards inc. Peoples' Choice ones. Phenomenal goodies - inc. their "attitude cupcakes", which are more than worth the $2 each that they cost. Place was so packed day before Thanksgiving that they had to put the machine with tickets (for taking turns) outside the bakery. GOOD nutroll - only thing I don't buy there are the pies. Like my own better.

        There is a small family company in Butler that makes nutrolls all year. www.dominicsdesserts.com

          The Post Gazette wrote an article a few years ago:

          I've had the Pasteries-A-La-Carte before...they're pretty good.

            The best I've ever had are made by a couple in Swissvale. You call them, they make you nut rolls in their home ovens (Thanksgiving and Christmas only). Made from a secret family recipe of Croation origin. They won't give me the recipe. Eight or $9 per roll. The best. E-mail me at jjcrisanti@hotmail.com if you want the contact details.

              The best nut, apricot and poppyseed rolls I've had are from Bubba's HomeBaked at www.bubbarolls.com. Been eating them for years!

                There is a place in McKees Rocks called Joyce's Homemade Cookies. Her cookies are awesome. I believe she also make nut rolls. She has a bunch of immigrant woman working for her - or at least she did. She used so make little nut horn cookies so she may make nut rolls.
