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.
