Ingredients

Pastry

2 (1/4-ounce) packages quick-rise active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
3 to 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup currants or raisins
1/2 cup candied fruit mix
2 tablespoons brandy, almond-flavored liqueur or apple juice

Filling

1 (7-ounce) tube almond paste
3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

Glaze

1 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Directions

Dissolve yeast in warm water in large bowl; stir in 1/2 teaspoon sugar. Add 2 cups flour, 1/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup butter, sour cream, egg yolks, salt, almond extract and vanilla. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. 

Stir in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle. Turn dough onto well-floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic (8 to 10 minutes). Place into greased bowl; turn, greased-side up. Cover; let rise in warm place until double in size (about 1 1/2 hours). (Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.) 

Meanwhile, combine currants and candied fruit mix in medium bowl. Pour brandy over fruit; let stand 15 minutes. 

Punch down dough. Place dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead fruit and brandy mixture into dough just until fruit is thoroughly distributed. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 14x10-inch oval, approximately 1/2-inch thick. 

Stir together almond paste and 3 tablespoons butter in small bowl. Spread mixture lengthwise on dough. Fold oval lengthwise so top edge is within 1 inch from bottom edge. Pinch edges gently to seal. Place onto greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise 45 minutes. (Stollen will not double in size.) 

Heat oven to 350°F. Combine 1 egg and milk in small bowl; beat with fork. Brush onto stollen. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely. 

Just before serving, sift powdered sugar over top of stollen.

Recipe Tip

To freeze stollen, do not sift with powdered sugar. Wrap tightly in plastic food wrap; freeze. Just before serving, thaw; sift powdered sugar over top.
