    Default looking for a stollen recipes

    20 years ago at my eldest daughter's christening, my then sister-in-law
    brought a stollen her mother had made. Now before someone gets their
    knickers in a twist about using 'pre-made' or 'canned' ingredients, close
    this thread now and no one will get offended. The stollen was made using
    Pillsbury crescent rolls. The mother has since died and the former
    sister-in-law, although I still am cordial with her, couldn't boil water
    without burning it, so forget getting a recipe from her. Can anyone help?
    Thanks,
    ginny

    PS: it a 'memory' thing, this recipe, so please don't tell me I could make
    my own stollen, I know that, what I want to do is replicate this one.

    May or may not be the one you are looking for; but, there is a Holiday
    Stollen recipe on the Pillsbury site, specifying crescent rolls as an
    ingredient. To check it out, take a look at:
    http://tinyurl.com/HolidayStollen
    which is shorthand for:

    Oops, my bad. I had two recipes for stollen, one from Pillbury and another
    that called for crescent rolls; I misremembered which was which. Here's the
    one using crescent rolls:
    Stollen
    1 (8-count) package refrigerated crescent rolls
    8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    Cinnamon
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon flour

    Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Arrange rolls in a flat rectangle on a jellyroll pan or cookie sheet. Push
    seams together so that cheese mixture will not run through to pan. Mix
    remaining ingredients until smooth. Spread over crescent rolls, pushing
    cheese almost to edges. Fold comers over mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
    Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until rolls are golden brown. Cheese will rise a
    little then fall. Drizzle with a glaze of confectioners' sugar and milk
    while still a little warm. Cool and serve.

    I think this 'might' be it (fingers crossed). But if there are any others,
    please feel free to send them on as well.

    It's not possible to make a stollen from canned crescent rolls... a
    very different pastry... made something but not stollen.

    Try this:

    I'm making only one comment: I don't understand the taste buds of
    people who think Pillsbury bazooka breads of all kinds don't have an
    odd/funny taste. This includes crescent rolls.

    I agree. I used to think it was a strong baking soda flavor, but I'm
    wondering if it's preservatives. Croissants taste like butter.
    Crescents taste like chemicals.

    In my opinion anything put out by Pillsbury is made for twelve year
    old retards who know absolutely nothing about baking. Any resemblance
    between these products and real food is purely coincidental.

    Was the theft reported to the police. Maybe check with

    Have a wee look here! I don't see why you couldn't use prepared dough!

    They all, to me, have a slightly bitter aftertaste. I don't even
    purchase any of them any more.

    Was it really really rich?

    The German one we just bought is 952 calories a serving. So I've been
    slicing it pretty thin.

    I find whenever I've had "bam" breads or rolls that there is strange
    saltiness to them that is very unpleasant.

    It's a shame, too, because making Martha Stewart's mother's Stollen is
    really easy (and really, really good) - just takes time.

    They are just "off" somehow - I've never tried to determine what makes
    them that way.

    Would you post that recipe? I don't come from people who make
    stollen, but I make a Christmas bread with cardamom and orange in it
    that is delicious with butter or cream cheese for breakfast.
