Soften yeat in warm water; set aside.
Combine the 1/4 cup non dairy creamer,1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup salad oil, salt, warm water, 2 cups of the flour and eggs. Stir in dessolved yeast. Beat until smooth.
Toss nuts, dates and candied fruit and peel with the 1/4 cup flour. Add to yeast mixture. Stir in enough of the remaining flour (about 3 1/2 cups) to make a soft dough.
Cover and let rise in warm place until double in bulk, about 1 1/2 hours. When light, stir down.
Place dough on lightly floured board (use about 2 tablespoons flour to coat surface) and round up into a large ball. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. Divide dough into two equal parts.
For each twist, roll dough into an 18x10" rectangle. Brush surface with 1 tablespoon of the salad oil. Mix together half of the sugar, cinnamon and non dairy creamer. Sprinkle mixture over rolled-out dough.
Beginning at long edge, roll up tightly as for jelly roll. Pinch together edges to seal. Stretch and gently pull lengthwise to make a uniform roll. Form dough into ring and place sealed edge down on lightly greased baking sheet. Pinch end of ring together.
Repeat process to make the second twist.
Using a sharp knife or kitchen scissors, make cuts around the ring at 1" intervals, cutting about 2/3 through the dough. Now pick up each section with your fingers and gently twist the dough so that it rests on its side. Place a candied cherry on each twist. Cover and let rise until double, about 30 minutes.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 35-30 minutes or until twists are golden brown. Frost while warm with the following frosting:
Blend together 4 tablespoons non-dairy creamer, 2 cups sifted confectioner's sugar; 1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring and about 2 1/2 tablespoons hot water; beat until smooth. Frost warm twists. Makes enough for 2 Cherry Twists.
