Wreath Stollen from ancient Seventeen Magazine?

About 30-35 years ago, my mom and I made a beautiful and delicious wreath stollen from a recipe we found in Seventeen Magazine (yes, I was in the Seventeen demographic at the time). To this day, I remember the delicious fruit filling and lovely little holly leaves and berries we made out of dough and attached to the rolled wreath. I thought I'd cut the recipe out and saved it, but haven't been able to find it in my or my mom's recipe file(s). I even contacted Seventeen Magazine a few years back but never heard back. So this is a shot in the dark . . . are there any Food52-ers out there who might happen to have this recipe? Or anyone who has a recipe for something similar? Would love to recreate it for my mom and my family. Thanks!

I am looking for the same recipe. I cut it out, glued it on index cards and used it for years, but sadly it is lost. It was served for Christmas breakfast at our house every year. My family still asks for it! Sure wish we could find it!

Oh nice! My fingers are crossed for you! Please do share if she's able to find it.

TobiT - Don't have the recipe (sorry!) but do remember making it. If memory serves, you could also make it as a Christmas tree. It WAS good (or you and I have share nostalgia lenses). You just conjured up a very delightful (and deep down) memory! Thank you.

SeaJambon - thanks for confirming my memory! I contacted CookbookCherie and she thinks she may have seen the recipe. If her digging turns up anything I will let you know.

This blog features recipes from vintage issues of Seventeen. She hasn't posted a stollen recipe, but perhaps you could leave a comment and let her know that you're looking for it - maybe it will turn up! http://cookbookcherie.wordpress.com/
