Step 1

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the butter, sugar, eggs, salt and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/4 hours.

Punch dough down; divide into thirds. Shape each portion into a 12 inch x 7 inch oval.

In a bowl, combine the walnuts, brown sugar, cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Spread down the middle third of each stollen. Fold a long side over to within 1 in. of opposite side; press edge lightly to seal. Place on greased baking sheets; curve ends slightly. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 45 minutes.

Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Top with Vanilla Drizzle (recipe below).

Vanilla drizzle:

In a small bowl, combine the sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve desired consistency. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over bread. Yield: 1/2 cup.
