Cherry Almond Pull-Apart Bread Recipe

Cherry Almond Pull-Apart Bread Recipe

I recommend these rolls as a sweet treat for Christmas or Easter morning, or whenever you have overnight guests. When my son and son-in-law visit, they devour them almost before they hit the table. They're so yummy, gooey and good.
