Stollen

Very very good raisin bread! Make for Christmas.

  • 1 c. milk
  • ½ c. sugar
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • ¾ c. cold water
  • 6 tbsp. soft shortening
  • ½ c. lukewarm water
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 2 pkg. yeast
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 to 1 ½ c. flour
  • ¼ c. raisins
  • ¼ c. currants
  • ¼ c. chopped candied fruit
  • ¼ c. candied cherries, cut up
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter or margarine
  • vanilla icing
  • ¼ cup chopped nuts

Knead into dough. When light, add raisins, currants, fruit, and cherries. Shape into two balls. Let rest 10 mins. Flatten each piece of dough into an oval sheet about ¾” thick. Brush ½ of each sheet with melted butter. Fold over like Parkerhouse roll. Place on greased sheets. Brush with margarine. Let rise till double (1 hour). Bake at 350 for 20-25 mins. Frost (with plain butter icing, says Grandma).
