Watergate Bakery Easter Yummies

Look at this beautiful table of baked goods wrapped in glossy Easter colors and tied with ribbons.  I thought this was a gorgeous presentation.  So simple.

I was curious as to what these were.  I first thought they were Stollen.  So I asked the lady in the shop and she told me that they were not Stollen but more closely resembled a Dutch Passbrood.  Stollen is a bread-like fruitcake made with yeast, water and flour, and usually with zest added to the dough.  Dutch Passbrood (Dutch Easter Bread) is a traditional Easter loaf from the Netherlands and is filled with a sweet almond paste and studded with golden raisins and candied lemon peel.  Doesn't that sound delicious?
