Candy Cane Coffee Cake Counts as Catholic 'Cause it's Christmassy

My mom usually whips out three or four of these beauties each December. You roll out dough into a rectangle, cut the edges into strips, pile the middle with bits of dried apricot and candied cherries, and braid the strips of dough over the filling. Then bend it around into a candy cane shape, bake it, ice it and decorate with cherries and mint leaves. These things are always eaten in short order (mostly by me... I'm not sure my roommate even got any before I polished off the one my mom sent me home with.)
