Merry Christmas Eve!!
The busyness of the Christmas season has finally started to subside for me - the cookies have been decorated, the cakes delivered and the meals prepped. I feel like I finally have time to take a deep breath and soak in all that the season has to offer.
I baked a sweet Christmas bread this week to take to a Christmas dinner with friends. It was really delicious and the powdered sugar made it looked like it had been covered in snow. I don't quite have the twisting technique down yet but that just means that I'll have to make it more often to perfect it.
Repeat 2 more times. Finish with a dough circle. Place a 2 1/2" circle in center of dough. Cut 16 slices to the center of glass.
Twist each triangle two times - alternating directions. Cover and let rise 1 hour.
Bake 18 minutes at 375.
Dust with powdered sugar.
The original recipe called for a raspberry jam filling but I thought that nutella would make an equally good bread. (And I had a half jar of nutella that I had to use up.) I would like to try this bread again with the raspberry. And maybe a lemon version?
I hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
