|One-half Christmas Dough|
1 cup finely chopped fresh cranberries
1/2 (one-half) cup sugar
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
|In saucepan, combine cranberries, sugar and orange peel. Bring to boil over medium heat. Stir and cook five minutes. Cool to room temperature. |
Remove six marble-size pieces of dough and set aside. Roll remaining dough to 10?15-inch rectangle. Spread filling almost to the edge over 2/3 of rectangle, covering a 10? 10-inch portion. Fold into thirds, like a letter, starting with the unfilled end of dough. Cut into eight slices. On greased baking sheet, arrange slices, spoke-fashion, with cut sides up. Join ends at center and pinch to seal. Pinch tip of each petal to make points. Arrange reserved balls on dough in center. Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 25 minutes. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove from baking sheet to serving plate to cool. Serves 16.
