Stollen (pronounced shtoh-luhn) is a traditional Christmas bread from Germany. The bread varies slightly from one area of Germany to another, so that one hears of Dresden, Bavarian, or other regional stollens. The bread is often stuffed with fruits, marzipan and sometimes nuts. The traditional shape is that of a large, folded oval that resembles a large Parker House roll. Make it a month or six weeks ahead and then freeze it. On Christmas morning, unwrap it, and reheat it in a warm (300 F) oven, and enjoy it with coffee and hot chocolate. This recipe makes two loaves and I usually give one as a gift with reheating instructions written on a Christmas card.
