Don't keep stallin' ... come get your holiday stollen.

Among the traditional holiday desserts we go nuts for each December, the Bavarian fruit bread stollen more than deserves its very own “where to buy” roundup. Stuffed with spices and nuts, stollen is coated with powdered or icing sugar, and often sliced and served with butters, honeys or jams. Toast it, microwave it, eat it straight out of the package — it doesn’t matter how you indulge in the sweet, sourdough-like stollen, so long as you order ahead from one of these local bakeries.
