Title: Scandinavian almond ring (basic sweet dough)
Yield: 6 Servings
1 lg Egg
1 3/4 c Ground blanched or un
-blanched almonds (7 ounces)
1/4 c Lightly salted butter or
-margarine, at room
1/3 c Granulated sugar
1/2 ts Almond extract
1 tb Sweet sherry wine or vanilla
1/2 ts Ground cardamom seed
1/2 Recipe Basic Sweet Dough
2 ts Milk, mixed with 1 teaspoon
Beat the egg in a medium-sized bowl Add the almonds, butter, sugar,
almond extract, sherry, and cardamom. Mix well. Cover and let stand
for 5 minutes.
Roll out the Basic Sweet Dough to a rectangle 12 x 18 inches. Spread
the almond filling evenly over the dough, leaving 2 inches along one
long side. Starting from the other long side, roll up the dough like
a jelly roll. Place, seam down, on a lightly greased baking sheet,
twist into a circle and pinch the ends to join. Using scissors, make
cuts about three-fourths of the way through the dough at about 1-inch
intervals. Cover and let rise for 20 minutes in a warm place.
Heat the oven to 350F. Bake the coffee cake for 25 to 30 minutes
until golden brown. Remove from the oven and brush with the
milk-sugar mixture. Cool on a wire rack.
Makes one coffeecake.
