Preparing Christmas Stolen.

So, first of all, it is necessary to soak the dried cranberries in rum for about 3-4 hours.


The hazelnut must be roasted. If you do not have it, fry in a pan. Hazelnut must be milled in large crumbs. I did it with a hammer.


Remove butter (100 g) from the refrigerator and leave at room temperature until softened. Then, with a rind, rub 100 g of softened oil from 100 g of cane sugar.


Kill an egg


 Rub the cheese and mix thoroughly with the mixture.

Mix in a cranberry paste with rum and nuts.


Sift through a sieve flour with a rinse aid and add the dough, kneading the dough.


Then, sprinkle with small pieces of manna groats and carefully knead the dough with your hands.


A steep dough will come out, which does not stick to hands and dishes.


Dough leave at rest for 20-30 minutes. Then rolled on the pressed flour of the working surface in an oval cake, make a swath of a furrow / deepening.


Fold in half


Translate to the dish covered with parchment.


Send in an oven heated to 200 degrees for 15 minutes. Then you should lower the temperature to 170 degrees and bake for another 35-40 minutes. Readiness to check with a toothpick. Ready to roll thickly enough to grease with butter.


Then cover with parchment and 2 layers of towels, leave to cool off. Otistilyi shtollyn generously sprinkle with sugar powder.


It turns out unusually delicious! Especially I like the large number of hazelnuts and "drunk" cranberries.


They say, if you pack it in parchment and store it in a cool place, then it will last about 2 weeks. Do not check! Bon appetit!
