I personally haven't tried this bread yet, but plan on making it over the next couple of days. I got it from Betty Crocker. It sounds delicious!

I made these for the first time when I was a child, no kidding. I saved my pennies and ordered the Betty Crocker paperback cook book. I used pie filling in the center. I used cherry, apple and blueberry. Two were candy cane shape and one a full circle wreath. It has been many many years as I am now 54! Going to make them this year! Easy and fantastic recipe. Merry Christmas!

Directions

  1. Heat sour cream over low heat just until lukewarm.
  2. Dissolve yeast in the warm water. Stir in sour cream, butter, sugar, salt, eggs and 2 cups of the flour. Beat until smooth. Mix in enough remaining flour to make it easy to handle.
  3. Turn dough onto well-floured board. Knead until smooth, about 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl. Turn once to bring greased side up. Cover. Let rise in warm place until double, about 1 hour. To test for rising, stick two fingers in dough. If holes remain but top stays smooth, dough is ready.
  4. Heat oven to 375°F Punch down dough: Divide into three equal parts.
  5. Roll each part into a rectangle, 15 x 6 inches. Place on greased baking sheet. With scissors, make 2-inch cuts at 1/2-inch intervals on both long sides of the rectangles.
  6. Combine apricots and cherries. Spread 1/3 of the fruit mixture down the center of each of the rectangles. Crisscross strips over the filling. Stretch dough to 22 inches. Curve to form a “cane.”.
  7. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. While warm, brush with butter and drizzle canes with Thin Icing. If desired, decorate with cherry halves or pieces.
  8. For Icing, blend 2 cups powdered sugar with about 2 tablespoons water. If icing is too stiff, add water a drop at a time. If too thin, add more powdered sugar a little at a time.
