2 cups sour cream
2 pkg. dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
Approx. 6 cups flour

Cooked apples with cinnamon, sugar, nuts, and raisins (drain off all liquid).

2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tbsp. water

Heat sour cream over low heat until lukewarm. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in sour cream, 1/4 cup margarine, sugar, salt, eggs, and 2 cups of the flour. Beat until smooth. Mix in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle. Turn dough onto floured board. Knead until smooth, about 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl, greased side up. Cover; let rise until double. Heat oven to 375. Punch down dough; divide into 3 equal parts. Roll each part into rectangle 15x6 inches. Place on greased baking sheet. With scissors, make 2-inch cuts at 1/2-inch intervals on long sides of rectangle. Combine apples, sugar, etc. for filling; spread ⅓ of mix down center of each rectangle. Crisscross strips over filling for a braided look. Stretch dough to 22 inches. Curve dough to form a cane shape. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. While warm, brush with butter and drizzle canes with icing. If desired, decorate with cherry halves or pieces, or red and green gel, to make holly berries and leaves.
