In my effort to have some free time for some sewing today, I got busy last night and cooked. I made Snert - erwtensoep. (that's the Dutch) You know it as split pea soup. Yummy.
And then using a King Arthur mix that I had, I made stollen. The package makes 2 loaves. We enjoyed some this morning for breakfast. This is normally a Christmas bread, but we are just anticipating what's ahead. Quite nice. Particularly because I'm not a big citron - candied fruit - person, I added raisins, craisins, dried cherries, apricots and pineapple. They were all soaked in a vanilla syrup, then added as required. (3 lbs!) A couple of raises and then bake.
