Linda's Kitchen Nutroll Freezing Tips ❄️

1. Freshness First: For best results, freeze nutrolls as soon as possible after baking.

2. Wrap Securely: 
Individual Slices: Double-wrap slices in plastic wrap followed by aluminum foil for airtight protection.
Whole Pastries: Use the original packaging or wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then in a freezer-safe bag or container.

3. Label and Date: Include the freeze date for easy reference.

4. Freeze Strategically: Place nutrolls on a flat surface in the freezer until solid, then stack to save space.


Thawing Your Frozen Nutroll

1. Thaw Slowly: For best results, thaw your nutroll overnight in the refrigerator. Each of Linda's Kitchen nutrolls can be sliced into 13 pieces AFTER the nutroll has been brought to room temperature. This reduces the chance of breaking and ensures the pieces look their best.

Room Temp: Slice and enjoy a taste of tradition at room temperature. 😋
Warm & Cozy: Microwave for 30 seconds on medium heat a safe plate.

Important Nutroll Notes:

  • Linda's Kitchen nutrolls can be stored at room temperature for up to 5 days or in the refrigerator for a bit longer.
