Paasstol is a traditional Dutch Easter Bread… (when served at Christmas it's called Kerststol). The recipe is shared by Tim Pierson. His great grandparents emigrated to America from war torn Holland in the 1940’s, as bakers. They settled in Salt Lake City, Utah and opened Sugarhouse Bakery. One of their loved recipes, brought with them from Holland, was Paasstol. Paasstol is a flavorful raised bread stuffed with raisins, apricots, or cranberries and filled with almond paste log in the center, then generously dusted with powdered sugar.
