Recipe by PJ Pickles
"I have to admit, I always wanted to keep this recipe to myself but everyone has shared so much over the year. This is an almond-filled Easter bread adorned with Easter eggs and almonds. The thing about this recipe is, if you make 2 you might as well make 8. It takes time so this year I was able to start the tradition with my nieces who will be helping me. I swear that this is the greatest Easter bread."

I hope everyone enjoys it, the process does take awhile but it pays off, let the dough rise and follow the directions first time out.
