Holiday Stollen — Our Signature Specialty
The tradition of Christmas stollen dates back to 14th century Germany where it was made only at Christmas, the time of greatest festivity and rejoicing. Today stollen continues to be a holiday favorite with families passing their special recipes from generation to generation. Slices of stollen are usually served with breakfast, often warmed or toasted and spread with butter, but also enjoyed as an afternoon snack or after dinner dessert.
Our stollen is made by hand in small batches under the direction of our most experienced bakers. Our unique recipe uses rum-soaked raisins, dates and pecans added to a dough of sweet butter and specially spiced flour. The mix is cut into rough loaves, hand-shaped and wrapped around a marzipan center then baked to a golden brown. When cooled, each loaf is brushed with melted butter and rolled in sugar and placed onto trays to rest. To finish, we roll the stollen in Neu Schnee, or New Snow sugar.
Stollen improves with age and will stay fresh for several weeks stored in a dry pantry or for months in the refrigerator or freezer. Each loaf is packaged in our own decorative holiday box and delivered with your personal greeting.
Stollen may be shipped UPS Ground anywhere in the continental US and Hawaii.
