"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."
I like to make and share this festive delight with family and friends. The candied fruit and nuts add holiday color to a rich bread. A slice really brightens a snowy winter day. —Sharon Hasty, New London, Missouri
These crowd-pleasing Czech pastries are the perfect partner for a cup of joe. They’re easy to make with canned cherry pie filling, but the homemade prune filling is a delicious option, too. —Carol Houdek, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Old-fashioned oats, brown sugar and molasses make these down-home loaves the best-tasting rye bread I've ever had. In fact, guests often ask me for the recipe. Slices are wonderful for sandwiches.

"My husband, our three girls and I all love to cook, so we're always coming up with something new to try," explains Nancy Bourget of Round Rock, Texas. These yummy biscuits require just four ingredients, including leftover brats. TIP: "Serve them with mustard and a big bowl of rice and beans or bean soup." recommends Nancy.
I’ve been making this during the holiday season for nearly 50 years. When we flew to Alaska one year to spend Christmas with our daughter’s family, I carried my stollen on the plane!—Rachel Seel, Abbotsford, British Columbia
