I just discovered this board, right before Christmas baking begins. Maybe we can share some favorite Christmas recipes. I will start:Christmas StollenIngredients 2 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup sugar 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter or margarine 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese 1 cup dried tart cherries or other dried fruit, coarsely chopped 1/3 cup pecans, toasted and chopped 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh lemon peel 2 large eggs Confectioners' sugar (optional)DirectionsPreheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease large cookie sheet. In large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. With pastry blender or using two knives scissors-fashion, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in ricotta, dried cherries, pecans, vanilla, lemon peel, and eggs until well combined.Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. With floured hands, gently knead dough two or three times to blend. With floured rolling pin, roll dough into 10" by 8" oval. Fold oval lengthwise, bringing top half over so that bottom of dough extends by about 1 inch.Place stollen on prepared cookie sheet. Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Transfer stollen to wire rack; cool completely. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar to coat just before serving if you like.
