Amis's Christmas Stollen
75 mins (prep 60, cooking 15)
20 ingredients

Pronounced shtoh-luhn, stollen is a wonderful traditional Christmas bread from Germany. The traditional shape is that of a large, folded oval. Every year my grandmother would make this for Christmas and we would have it for a light breakfast on Christmas morning to tide us over until the feasting started. In my family it's just not Christmas without the smell of stollen baking throughout the house. And I love making this and presenting it as gifts as well. My grandmother originally got this from the 1963 Better Homes and Gardens Bread Cook Book. Last year she passed the tradition down to me (in other words, if I didn't make it it's not getting done :D) and I added some spices as well as some dates and figs. This can be a bit involved since the total time for rising is 2 hours 40 minutes but it's definitely worth it. Note: this does call for almonds. Zaar World Tour 05
