We really enjoyed this recipe. I didn't make it for Christmas, so I didn't shape it like Candy Canes, just braided it on a cookie sheet. This recipe makes 2 loaves. It is wonderful. I served it for a bible study and everyone thought I purchased it from the bakery. I did heat up my cherry jam before drizzling over the top with a spoon.( I only needed about 6 oz. of jam) I also made simple white icing out of powdered sugar and milk to drizzle over the top of that. It was a very pretty presentation. The only suggestion I have is to let it cool completely before serving. I served mine warm out of the oven and the filling had a weird, almost eggy texture. When we ate the leftovers, they were much better. The filling was creamy and smooth, and the flavors had blended nicely. Thank you for a great recipe. Pretty easy, too. I think I'll make it for Christmas morning.
