My family loves eating these zesty bread twists with a spaghetti supper. Soft and light as a feather, they have a perfect balance of garlic and oregano. Be sure to snatch one before passing them around the table.
This holiday bread is easy to make, although the braiding takes a bit of practice. I serve it for evening coffees, then use the rest toasted for breakfast. I also give it as gifts—it's delicious with cheese—and it always goes over big at Christmas bake sales.
My husband's a dairy farmer. I work as a bank teller and stenographer. At home, I enjoy cooking and crafts.
From Jami Blunt of Hardy, Arkansas, this hearty aromatic bread has just a hint of honey and garlic. She writes, “This is one of my favorite breads. It goes with anything from bologna sandwiches to spaghetti.”
"I adapted an old family recipe to take advantage of the handy roll mixes that are available these days," explains Dawn Conlan of Woodbridge, Virgina. "These savory crescents are a must at holiday get-togethers and special occasions."
"Making this stollen has become a tradition for our family," writes Rebekah Radewahn of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. "Our family, friends and neighbors look forward to it every Christmas. We like it because it does not contain the usual candied fruits and citron called for in other stollens."
It's easy to get on a roll in the morning when these cinnamony treats greet you at the table. Writes Carolyn Wolbers from Loveland, Ohio. "These tender rolls have the same sweet aroma and glistening glaze as bakery rolls...only without the guilt."
