Ingredients

  • 1

    T yeast

  • 1/2

    cup warm water

  • 1/2

    cup warm milk

  • 1/4

    cup sugar or honey

  • 1/3

    cup soft butter

  • 1

    tsp salt

  • 1

    egg

  • 3-4

    cups flour (I used half whole wheat flour and half white.)

  • Topping ingredients: brown sugar, craisins, sliced almonds, and glaze

Directions

Combine all ingredients except flour and topping ingredients. Slowly mix in flour to make a soft dough. Knead five minutes. Place in greased bowl. Cover and allow to rise until double (about 1 hour.) You may place though dough in the fridge to rise slowly for up to three days before shaping and baking. Divide dough in half. Roll half the dough to form a 15x9 inch rectangle. Spread with brown sugar, craisins, and sliced almonds. Roll up tightly from long edge. Place on a greased baking sheet and pinch edges of dough together to make a ring. Cut 2/3 of a way through the ring at one-inch intervals. Turn each slice onto its side. Allow to rise until double (about 40 minutes.) Repeat with second half of dough. Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes. I found that it browned quickly so half-way through the baking time I covered it with foil. After cooling, drizzle with glaze made with 1/2 cup confectionery sugar, 1/2 tsp almond flavoring, and 1 T milk. Serve. You may find yourself with a new holiday tradition like I did.
