Povitica Walnut
Walnut povitica

We recently saw a Strawberry Hill display of poppy seed, apple cinnamon, walnut, and chocolate chip cream cheese povitica at Costco. Povitica is traditionally a spiced sweet eastern European pastry roll. I first became familiar with nut rolls several years ago when someone from work brought in a poppy seed roll.

Tasting a morsel of each at the sampling station, the apple cinnamon and poppy seed povitica were delicious, as expected. I was sold on the spiced, honey walnut pastry with its moist, dense center and thin flaked crust. It reminded me a lot of baklava, but not as bitter (from the nuts) nor as sweet.

Hmm. Might have to check out my Costco for some new goodies.

Geez does that look good.

Hi Mrs. L,

The povitica are gone, but ours recently began carrying Korean nori. This enables a bad addiction of mine. *sigh*

Heyas Adam,

We'll have to wait another year...or drive over to a Slovenian bakery. :) Next time you're in the Kansas City area, Strawberry Hill apparently sells blueberry cream cheese povitica on Mother's Day.
