Cranberry Filled Wreaths

Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 (16 ounce) package hot roll mix
  • 1 cup Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup hot water (120 to 130 degrees F)
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute or 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons margarine or butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts - divided use
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar - divided use
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons low-fat or fat-free milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Spray two cookie sheets with cooking spray. Place cranberry sauce in fine strainer or sieve; stir to break up. Set aside to drain thoroughly.
  2. In large bowl, combine contents of box and yeast packet from hot roll mix with oats and 1/4 cup granulated sugar; mix well. Stir in hot water, egg substitute and margarine until dough pulls away from bowl. Knead on lightly floured surface 5 minutes or until smooth. Divide dough in half. Keep half the dough covered. Press other half of dough into 12 x 8-inch rectangle on one cookie sheet. Top with half of drained cranberry sauce, 1/4 cup nuts and 1 tablespoon sugar to within 1-inch of edge. Roll up, starting from long side, pinching seams and ends to seal. Bring ends together to form a ring. With kitchen shears, cut through ring almost to center at 2-inch intervals. Make second wreath with remaining dough. Cover both wreaths loosely with plastic wrap; let rise in warm place 30 minutes or until nearly double in size.
  3. Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Uncover wreaths; bake 23 to 28 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Carefully remove to wire rack; cool completely.
  5. For icing, combine all ingredients in small bowl; mix until smooth. Spread over top of each wreath.
  6. Serve warm or at room temperature.
