Ingredients

  • 2 - eggs
  • 1/2 tsp - salt
  • 2 tbsp - Milk
  • 1/2 cup - Butter
  • 1/2 cup - water
  • 1/2 cup - Sugar
  • 1/2 cup - kishmish
  • Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 cup - dried Cherries
  • 1 tsp - Almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp - ground Nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup - dried Blueberries
  • 1/2 tsp - ground Cardamom
  • 2.5 tsp - rapid rise Yeast
  • 1/2 tsp - freshly grated Lemon peel
  • 1/2 cup - slivered almonds, toasted
  • 2.5 cups - bread or all-purpose flour

How to Make X'Mas Delight

  • In large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, cardamom, lemon peel, salt and nutmeg.
  • Heat butter, water and milk until very warm; stir into dry ingredients. Stir in 1 egg, 1 egg yolk (reserve 1 egg white), almond extract and enough remaining flour to make soft dough.
  • Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Cover, and leave it for about 10 minutes. Knead in almonds and fruits (dough may be slightly sticky).
  • Roll to 12 x 8-inch oval. Fold dough in half lengthwise, slightly off center, so top layer is set back 1/2 inch from bottom edge, pinch to seal.
  • Place on greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 60 minutes.
  • Lightly beat reserved egg white, brush on dough. Bake at 350 F for 30 to 35 minutes or until done, covering with foil after 20 minutes to prevent excess browning.
  • Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
  • Sift powdered sugar over top.
