Adding requested picture of Cherry-Go-Round.

 Fresh out of the over.  You can also add a sugar glaze frosting, but I never do because we like the hot yeast taste with lots of real butter!!
Instead of making 2 rounds this year I made 2 have pieces out of the one.

In response to my fb post about having everything done and ready for our Christmas celebrating, except the Cherry-Go-Round that I make for Christmas morning each year, here is the recipe:


Scald 1 Cup milk - Stir in:  1/2 Cup sugar - 1 teaspoon salt - 1 stick margarine.  Let mixture stand until Lukewarm.

Dissolve 1 Package Yeast in 1/4 Cup warm water.  Add milk mixture, 1 egg, 2 Cups unsifted flour.  Beat till smooth - Add 2 more Cups unsifted flour. 

Cover and put in refrigerator - 2 hours or up to 2 days.

Cherry filling:  Blend 1/2 Cup brown sugar - 1/2 Cup flour - 1/2 Cup chopped pecans.

Roll dough in two (2) 14"x7" oblongs.

Spread with 1 1/2 Cups (1 can) drained red tart cherries & sugar mixture (I have also used the cherry pie filling can).

Roll up and seal edges - Form 2 rings on greased baking sheets.  Cut 2/3 through at 1" intervals - twist (this forms the wreath shaped rings). Cover - let rise in warm place until double - 1 hour.

Bake @ 375 degrees for 25 minutes.

Sorry I don't have a picture - but I haven't made them yet this year!!!!  I have been preparing these for MANY years for our Christmas mornings and especially to my son, Marc, it's not Christmas without the Cherry-Go-Rounds.  I did not fix them last year, due to Suzette being so ill, but I'm making them this year.  Marc & Aric will join us and be attending church with us.  I am so happy that Christmas falls on Sunday!!

If you fix them------let me know what you think.

MERRY CHRISTMAS how wonderful to celebrate our LORD and SAVIOR!!!!!

They do sound good and I would also like to see a picture of them when you are done.
Merry Christmas dear friend.

I like this. It would be a nice change from cinnamon rolls.

I only wish I had time today to whip one of these up for tomorrow's breakfast!

Our 2 oldest grandsons and their girlfriends came by to decorate gingerbread houses. Please stop by my blog today if you have a minute and vote for your favorite.

It was a lot of fun and I hope it becomes a tradition around my house.

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.
