Directions

  1. In large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat milk, butter, and water until very warm (120 degrees to 130 degrees F). Gradually add to flour mixture; beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add eggs and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed, scraping bowl occasionally. With spoon, stir in enough remaining flour to make stiff batter. Cover tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 to 24 hours.
  2. Cranberry filling: In medium saucepan, combine chopped cranberries, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 1/2 teaspoons grated orange peel; bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until very thick. Remove mixture from heat, and let cool.
  3. Remove dough from refrigerator. Punch dough down. Remove to lightly floured surface. Roll to 21 x 12-inch rectangle. Spread Cranberry Filling over dough to within 1/2 inch of edges. Fold crosswise in thirds, to enclose filling, making a 12 x 7-inch rectangle. Press edges to seal. Cut dough into 12 (1-inch) strips. Holding ends of each strip, twist three times. Pinch together ends of each twisted strip to form wreaths; place on greased baking sheets. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until almost doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes or until done, switching positions of sheets halfway through baking time for even browning. Remove wreaths from baking sheets; let cool on wire racks. Frost wreaths with Powdered Sugar Icing, if desired.
  5. Powdered Sugar Frosting: In bowl, combine powdered sugar, 4 to 5 teaspoons evaporated milk, and 1/2 teaspoon SPICE ISLANDS Pure Vanilla Extract. Stir until smooth

Perfect for the holidays! I love how these come together. They look so impressive when they're done, like a lot more time and effort went into them. I brought these in to work and they were gone...

I had left over cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving I needed to use up and this was a great way to do it! So, obviously i didn't make the filling and can't say how that turned out. I did add the o...

This was an adventure! First- I was out of AP flour, but since I have been dabbling in gluten free baking I had some rice flour on hand. I subbed that for the AP flour, and it resulted in a lo...
