20 to 25 maraschino cherries, rinsed, drained and cut up
1/2 cup slivered almonds
6 to 8 cups sifted flour
Using a little more liquid plus 8 cups flour, you can make 2 loaves.
An egg yolk mixed with 1 tablespoon milk and brushed on loaves makes a shiny
loaf (before baking).
Mix all the ingredients. Knead until well mixed. Let rise in warm protected
area until double in size.
Knead down flat about 1-inch thick. (Use rolling pin or pat down.) Make
long strips about 1-inch wide, intertwine 4 strips to make bottom. Then braid
3 strips for top. Place on top of 4 strips, secure with toothpicks. Let rise
1/2 hour or so.
Bake for 45 to 55 minutes at 325 degrees F.
While still warm mix confectioners' sugar and water; drizzle over top
