  1. Was "stollen" copyrighted or something? Yea...

  2. Haha, they probably did some market research and people were more likely to buy "Holiday Bread" over "stollen."

  3. You had me at chocolate chip marshmallows

  4. They really need to bake more of the Red Velvet cookies so they last until the evening. They're ALWAYS out by the evening when I come.
