  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 3 to 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 pkg. active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/2 cup chopped candied cherries or mixed fruit
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup dried currants or raisins

    By hand, stir in cherries, almonds, currants and 1 1/2 cups flour. If necessary, add 1/4 to 3/4 cup additional flour until dough pulls cleanly away from sides of bowl. Cover with greased plastic wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in warm place (80 to 85°F.) until doubled in size, 45 to 60 minutes.

    Grease cookie sheet. Remove dough from bowl; place on greased cookie sheet. Lightly knead to form round ball. With greased hands, stretch and press dough to form 12-inch round. Brush with melted butter. Prick dough several times with fork. Cover; let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, 40 to 50 minutes.

    Heat oven to 400°F. Uncover dough; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar. Bake at 400°F. for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet; place on serving tray. Cool 10 minutes; cut into wedges with pizza cutter or serrated knife. Serve warm.
