I made this tonight & all though it is very attractive, I probably won't make it again. With only 6 cups of flour, the dough was unmanagable. It was just goo. I ended up adding at least another 3 cups of flour just so that I could get it out of the bowl & rolled out. It was still a very soft dough. I would double the amount of almond filling. I thought that's what I would taste but I just get a hint of it. Also, is there a second rising after the braid is formed? Overall, it was too much dough and not enough filling.
