This large old board with Santa and a beautiful Christmas Eve scene is known as a Stollenbrett, or a board on which to serve Stollen at Christmastime. Stollen is my absolute favorite. It's a sweet yeast dough filled with raisins (or currants, etc.) and heavily coated with powdered sugar. Perfect with a cup of hot chocolate. Some people compare it to fruit cake, but it's really not at all like it. I received a care package from Germany already in late October filled with chocolates and a Stollen. I brought it along for Thanksgiving morning in St. Paul, so there is none left for Christmas morning. Of course, the board would be perfect to use at a Christmas party for any kind of sweets, or even cheese and crackers. The scene on this one is particularly nice.
