Grandma Muelleck’s Christmas Stollen

by Alisa posted December 24, 2011 category Cooking, Memories

Kristine & I want to keep Grandma’s delicious stollen recipe in our tradition, so we made it for the first time this year. This recipe is her original cut 1/4, which yielded 2 medium loaves.

Preheat oven to 325º F.

Dry Ingredients:
    1 1/4 lb. all-purpose flour
    3/4 c. white sugar
    5 t. (1 T. + 2 t.) Dr. Oetker baking powder
    1/2 t. salt
    1 t. Dr. Oetker vanilla sugar

Wet Ingredients:
    1 1/2 sticks cold butter
    2 eggs
    3/4 lb. cottage cheese, blended

Add-ins:
    1/3 c. candied citron, diced
    1 c. light raisins, moistened with 1/2 vial Dr. Oetker Bitter-Mandel Aroma
    zest of 1 lemon
    1 c. slivered almonds

Steps:

Add 1/2 vial Dr. Oetker Bitter-Mandel Aroma to 1 c. raisins. We used mostly golden & a few Thompson seedless.

We couldn’t find candied citron so we made candied lemon & orange peel from Martha Stewart’s recipe. Prepare 1/3 c.

Mix together dry ingredients in a mound

Cut butter into small pieces & work in with your hands to the size of peas

Make a well & add eggs (beat with fingers before mixing)

And lemon zest

Incorporate all ingredients from the outside in. When partway mixed, add fruit & nuts

Finish mixing until just together & form loaves. Bake for 40 – 50 minutes until golden brown & a toothpick comes out clean. They will spread wide.

Bask in the tradition & memories.
