This stollen makes a great morning sweet bread that freezes well. I highly recommend using home-made glace or candied peel for the best flavor. I also found and used pureed cottage cheese and just used a hand-mixer to combine ingredients (instead of using a food processor).
I found the directions for shaping the dough a little confusing, and had to search some web videos for help (this was the first time that I've ever made a stollen). Basically, you make an indentation in the vertical (long) center of the rolled out dough, then fold over the one of the long sides about a third of the way (instead of folding in half). This will make the center of your bread double-height, one side single height, and fold edge about 1-1/2 height.
