    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup dried apricot, diced
    • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or use white)
    • 1/2 cup dried sweetened cranberries
    • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour (plus a little more for sprinkling)
    • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    • 1 tablespoon water
    • 2 (11 ounce) packages refrigerated French bread dough
    • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
    • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
    • powdered sugar (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375*F.
    2. 2
      Dice apricots. Place apricots, chocolate chips, cranberries, flour and almond extract in a bowl. Mix well. Add water and mix again.
    3. 3

    4. 4
      Using a rolling pin, roll dough crosswise to a 4" width, creating a well down the center of each loaf.
    5. 5
      Spoon half of apricot mixture down the center of each loaf. Gather up the edges over filling, pinching firmly to seal.
    6. 6
      Place loaves, seam sides down, in an X pattern on baking sheet(or baking stone). Crisscross ends of dough to form a large figure 8, keeping ends of dough 1" from edge of pan and leaving two 1 1/2" openings in center of twist.
    7. 7
      Lightly brush egg white over dough using a pastry brush. Cut a 3" slit in each of the top sections of the twist to reveal filling.

    9. 9
      Bake 30-32 minutes or until deep golden brown.
    10. 10
