Fruit Braid

Here's another yummy recipe that uses any kind of sweet yeast dough that you like. You can also use just about any kind of pie filling or jam for the fruit filling. I made this one with my freezer apple pie filling and I am going to make it again with my homemade blackberry jam (at the request of the guys).

1 to 1 1/2 pounds of sweet yeast dough

1 to 1 1/2 cups fruit filling

Roll the dough into a large rectangle. Place the filling in a strip in the middle of the dough. Cut strips about 1" wide down the sides up to the edge of the filling. Bring the strips up to the middle of the filling, overlapping the ends a bit.

Cover with a towel and let raise in a warm place for about 1 hour. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool a bit. While it is cooling make a glaze with powdered sugar and milk. Drizzle it over the warm (not hot) braid.

It is best served warm.
