Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church on South Street had been my mom’s parish before she married my dad and joined him at St. Aloysius more than 50 years ago. Yesterday, she and I stopped by the basement there to pick up something that I can’t mention here because it involves Christmas presents for the rest of my family.
Anyway… members of the Ladies’ Guild were hard at work producing hundreds of nutrolls, poppyseed rolls and apricot rolls. The smell was divine! We were allowed to buy a few in advance of their sale tomorrow. The nutroll is my absolute favorite, and I just can’t imagine it being better anywhere else! At $10 each, any of these rolls is well worth it. Thank you, Bonnie Stankunas and the Ladies’ Guild for keeping this holiday tradition alive! If they ever run a nutroll baking class, I will be sure to let you, dear readers, know all about it.
Where: Holy Trinity Church, 370 South Street, Pottstown, PA 19464
When: Sunday, Nov. 21, before and after 10 am Mass
Cost: $10 each
What: Nutroll (walnuts), Apricot roll, Poppyseed roll. All can be frozen and brought out for holiday gatherings. YUM!
Thanks Sue! For sure, our rolls are hand-rolled with lots of love. If we hold a nutroll baking class it will be after the holidays when everyone is bored out of their minds and looking for something fun to do!
Also look for a takeout Lenten Meal – maybe haluski (cabbage, noodles, onions and butter), lentil soup and pierogies. All very yummy!
We’ll keep you posted on both projects.
Happy Thanksgiving! Bonnie
It was a pleasure meeting you today at Holy Trinity Church. I thoroughly enjoy reading your Positively Pottstown Blogs. Thanks so much for the very nice advertisement for the Holy Trinity bake sale tomorrow. We really appreciate that!!
Hi, Jean and Bonnie! It was so fun to see you both under such appetizing circumstances 🙂 I love to bake, but have never tried making any of the rolls. It was inspiring to see so many of them lined up and just to smell the aroma filling the room. Thanks for following the blog, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Sue
