Cranberry Toasts (Christmas Bread, Sliced and Toasted)

“I like to make this delicious bread for Christmas, but you can use it in dinner parties, serving either with "Country Pate" (look for it in this web site) or any creamy dip of your choice. You can use any nut you like. Instead of the berries, you can also use sun-dried tomatoes and omit the orange peel. I found both recipes in a Better Homes and Gardens, Dec/98.”
