Christmas Stollen

about 4 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 pkg. dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup water
2 eggs
1 cup chopped mixed candied fruit
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup choped walnuts

Combine 1 cup of the flour, the sugar, yeast, salt, cinnamon,
cardamom, and nutmeg in a mixing bowl. Place the milk, butter,
and water in a saucepan and heat over low heat until warm (120
degrees) stirring until the butter melts. Gradually add the warm
milk mixture to the flour. Beat until smooth, about 2 minutes.
Add the eggs, and 1 cup flour and beat 2 minutes longer. Add the
candied fruit, raisins, and walnuts. Stir in as much of the
remaining flour as possible. Place dough on a lightly floured
surface and knead in remaining flour. Knead for 10 minutes, until
dough is smooth and elastic. Place dough in greased bowl, cover,
and let rise about 1 1/2 hours or until double in bulk. Punch
dough down and divide in half. Knead each piece for 1-2 minutes.
Cover and let rest 10 minutes. Roll each out to an 11 x 7-inch
oval. Fold over in half. Place on greased cookie sheets, cover,
and let rise about 45 minutes. Bake in a preheated 375 oven 25-30
