"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar, salt, egg yolk, 1/2 c. softened margarine, half the flour. Beat 10 min. at medium speed. Scrape bottom and sides of bowl often.

Blend in rest of flour, almonds, fruits, lemon peel. Cover; let rise in warm draft-free place until doubled, about 1 1/2 c. hours. Stir down batter by beating 25 strokes. Cover tightly; refrigerate overnight.

On well-floured board, divide dough in half. Press each half into a 10 x 7-inch oval. Spread ovals with 2 tbsp. softened margarine. Fold each in two, longways. Firmly press folded edges only. Place on greased baking sheets. Brush with slightly beaten egg white mixed with 1 tbsp. water. Let rise in warm draft-free place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Bake in moderate oven (375) for 20 minutes, or until done. When cool, frost with confectioners' sugar frosting. Decorate with Planters Blanched Raw Almonds, citron, and candied cherries.
