Ingredients

Bread
3-1/2 to 3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope Fleischmann's® Quick Rise Yeast
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter OR margarine, sliced 1/4-inch thick
1 egg
Filling
1/4 cup butter OR margarine, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup almond paste
1 egg white
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Glaze
2 to 3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon almond extract
1-3/4 cups sifted powdered sugar
Sliced almonds for garnish

Instructions

Combine 2 cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl. Heat milk and butter in a glass measuring cup in a microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes or until temperature reaches between 120° to 130°F. Stir heated milk into flour mixture. Add egg and beat with an electric mixer for 3 minutes.


Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Knead dough for 4 to 6 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes.


Mix together filling ingredients; set aside.


Roll out dough to three 4×18-inch rectangles. Spread filling evenly on each piece of dough. Roll up each piece lengthwise, similar to a jelly roll. Pinch to seal the seam.


Braid all three pieces together and place on greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise about 1 hour or until doubled in size. Bake at 375°F for 30 to 35 minutes.


Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm braid. Garnish with slivered almonds.
