"This is a hand-shaped, filled yeast bread that my 2-year-old daughter loves to help prepare. The first part of this recipe is prepared in my bread machine on Christmas Eve. I make it right up to the second rise stage, then cover and refrigerate it. On Christmas morning, I allow it to warm up and rise until double in size before baking. It is especially sumptuous when it is still warm and a special treat for Christmas morning in our house. Drizzle chopped, toasted almonds over the ring if you wish." — Julia

Delicious, easy, great recipe! My daughter brought it to her first grade class for a special day and it disappeared quickly. Also made it for our Christmas morning brunch, as well as for several friends for Christmas gifts. We will definitely make this again! Thanks!
I had such high hopes for this bread but was very disappointed. I should have known there would be a problem when I saw the amount of yeast...3/4 teaspoon is a third of a package of yeast and that was suppose to make two bread rings rise??? It came out of my bread machince just fine, but after 1 1/2 hours of letting the rings rise, they hadn't grown at all. I baked them anyway and there was brown sugar all over the cookie sheets and the bottom of my oven. They didn't rise at all during the baking time either.
This has become a holiday tradition for my family. It always turns out beautifully and works well if made the night before and refridgerated as well. I recommend trying this recipe :)
This recipe reminds me so much of the one my Mom used to make at Christmas time. Thanks Julia!!!
Excellent! This was fairly easy to make and won a blue ribbon.
I made this Christmas morning with craisins and slivered almonds. I loved it so much that I made it again for Easter with dried apricots in the filling. Instead of 2 rings, I just made one big one. It is really pretty on a big platter, and so easy!
Very tasty. I added just a little more yeast. Turned out beautiful. Dough was very easy to work with.
Make ahead-Dough can be covered in a bowl and refrigerated up to 4 days before shaping/rising. This is a childhood recipe and it's wonderful. Simple, pretty and tasty.
