Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

7/8 Cup(s) Buttermilk, for Welbilt/DAK
and Zojirushi add 2 tb.
more buttermilk
1 Egg
3 Cup(s) All-Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon(s) Salt
4 Tablespoon(s) Butter or margarine
1/4 Cup(s) Sugar
1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Red Star Active Dry yeast
1 Cup(s) Powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon(s) Milk or eggnog, up to 1.5 Tb
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Vanilla
Green food coloring
Cinnamon red hot candies
Place dough ingredients in bread pan, select Dough setting, and press
Start. When the dough has risen long enough, the machine will beep.
Turn off bread machine, remove bread pan, and turn out dough onto a
lightly floured countertop or cutting board. Gently roll and stretch
dough into an 18-inch rope. Grease a large baking sheet(s). With a
sharp knife, divide the dough into 17 pieces. Roll each piece into a
ball and place it on the greased baking sheet in the shape of a
Christmas tree, spaced about a half-inch apart; 5 balls for the bottom
roll, 4 balls for the next row, 3 balls for the next row, 2 balls for
the next row, and 1 ball at the top. Combine the remaining 2 balls
into 1 large ball, gently roll it into a thick rope and shape it into
an "S" to form the tree trunk. VARIATION: This recipe makes one large
Christmas tree coffee cake. To create 2, 4, or 6 smaller trees, simply
divide the dough into 2, 4, or 6 pieces initially and then follow the
directions for dividing up the dough and shaping each tree. 3. Cover
and let rise in a warm oven for 30 to 45 minutes until doubled. (Hint:
To warm oven slightly, turn oven on Warm setting for 1 minute, then
turn it off, and place covered dough in oven to rise. Remove from oven
to preheat.) Remove baking sheet(s) from oven. Preheat oven to 375 F.
4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Cool on a cake rack. 5.
When the coffee cake(s) is cooled, in a small bowl, combine the icing
ingredients, adding enough liquid to make the icing thin enough to
spread over the coffee cake. Spread each roll with icing, then
decorate with cinnamon red hot candies. Yields 1 Christmas tree coffee
cake. Nutritional information per Christmas tree: Calories 149, Fat

added 1 tsp. of cinnamon and about 1/2 cups chopped pecans. Good!! I
also made 2 trees by dividing the dough in half, then making 12 balls,
using 10 for the tree and 2 for the trunk. Source: "The Bread
