Every Easter, for far too many years to remember, cheese braid has been a part of our holiday meals.
The origin of the recipe is unsure, although my memory vaguely recalls that it came from a very old issue of what was called Sunset Magazine.
It's a really delicious bread that never, ever fails to get rave reviews.
The filling, which is a creamy, yummy mixture of cream cheese, cottage cheese, lemon peel, raisins, and confectionery sugar, is especially good.
However, when anyone asks me for the recipe, I am sure to tell them that it is not particularly easy to make.
It requires three risings. This year, when I started the process of making four of these beauties, it was morning.
By the time they were all kneaded, put together, risen, baked, and finished, it was suppertime.
Three of them were gifts, including one to where we ate Easter dinner, and one was left for our house.
It was gone lickety split!
Now that Easter is over, it's back to watching the carbs and moving more, right?
