  1. In a small bowl, combine apricots and water; let stand for 1 hour. Drain. Add cherries; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the sour cream, sugar, salt, butter, eggs and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  3. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Punch dough down; divide into thirds. On a floured surface, roll each third into a 15-in. x 6-in. rectangle.
  5. Place each on a greased baking sheet. Spoon a third of the filling down the center of each rectangle. On each long side, cut 1-in.-wide strips 2 in. into the center. Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling. Seal end. Cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 30 minutes.
  6. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cover with foil if browning too fast. Cool.
  7. Combine sugar and milk; drizzle over bread. Garnish with cherries and apricots if desired. Yield: 3 loaves.
