245 grams sour cream
1 package  yeast dried  (10 mg)
70 ml  warm water
30 g. butter
35 grams sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
400 grams all purpose flour

Apple stuffing

800 grams apples peeled and sliced (fuji or Gala)
70 grams sugar
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

20 grams of butter
15 g cornstarch

For glaze

150 g powdered sugar
2 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon of lemon juice 
100 grams toasted almonds (in slices)


Make dough :

Heat the sour cream in microwave until lukewarm. Add butter to the sour cream. (this allows the butter to soften.
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in sour cream, butter, sugar egg and 2 cups of flour, beat until smooth . Mix remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.

Turn dough onto well floured board and knea until smooth - about 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turn greased side up. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size, about an hour. Heat oven to 180 ° (375 F) 
Divide the dough in two parts- Roll each part into rectangle and place the half of apple filling in each bread. Cut along the side of the dough with scissors and pull the dough across the top of the filling to create a braided effect.
Place on a buttered cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. 

To make the apple filling:

In a bowl put the apples cut into wedges and mixed with lemon juice, spices, sugar and salt. Let stand for 30 minutes.
After this time retrieved the juice of apples that will formed on the bottom of the bowl,
and pour in a saucepan with butter and cook  for 5 minutes, Add the cornstarch to apples and the the syrup you made.


Mix the powdered sugar, water and lemon juice, stir well, you can add more sugar or lemon for more thick.
While the braid still is warm brush with icing and sprinkle with toasted almonds.
