JJ's Easy Raspberry Braid- Christmas Breakfast

Falalalalalalala! Another Family favorite! This beautiful and easy to make braid can be made by a youngster! Look's complicated....NOT! When my children were growing up, we had this every Christmas morning, for sure, but, many times throughout the year. I adapted the recipe from my long time German mentor, Eva Kenly. This one you can have ready for tomorrow morning!

I am linking this recipe to "Foodie Friends Friday"!

  1. I like how you used seedless jam. They always get stuck in your teeth. You don't want seeds in your teeth for the xmas photos. Merry Christmas!

  2. LOL! True Scott, but, you can use any type of jam or jelly!! My favorite is seedless raspberry jam!! Merry Christmas to you!! Check out Santa's video he left last night!!
