Braided Cherry Dessert

If you need a new dessert for a holiday get-together this season, then you've found it! Yvonne from Tried and Tasty shows you how to put together this treat that is both beautiful and d...

I recently attended a Rhodes Blogger Demo Night. I was excited to be an attendee. One of the items that was made for us was this dessert. The demo instructor wasn't planning on baking it for us because she already had so many other goodies for us to try. With a little convincing a few of the bloggers got her to bake it anyway. I'm SO glad they did! One bite and I knew this is what I wanted to make for my next step-by-step recipe! It was so delicious. This is my first experience with a braid, so forgive me because it isn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination. It tastes amazing and that's [mostly] all that matters. Give it a try, you will love it. Perfect for a holiday get together, you will be a hit if you serve it at your next party.

For the icing you will need: powdered sugar, more butter, milk, vanilla or almond extract, and cherries, if desired.

Spray board or counter with non-stick cooking spray. Either place loaves end to end and roll together, or combine the dinner rolls. I used the rolls, so I combined them together.

Form dough into a 12x30-inch rectangle. With a clean ruler, gently mark a 4-inch space down the center. Then mark dough on either side of center into 1-1/2 inch strips horizontally.

Spread filling down the center of braid. I added a little to each edge as well. I cut my braid before topping it, but you can wait until after. Either one works.

Hi, can I use fresh cherries instead?
Marcia Oberg said on Nov 19, 2012
It would be very helpful if the recipe was all in one place. I really appreciate and love the pictures but a little bit harder to follow. I made this and it was amazing! I did switch it out just a bit though and used a roll of pizza dough which was perfect because it was rectangular my husband loved it because it made it a bit savory because of the salt in the crust.
