I cheat and use my bread machine these days for the dough. It REALLY rose.
Then I let it rise, divide it into 2 groups of 3 and braid each, rise, bake and thats it.
It can also be twisted or knotted into a danish style shape and baked. Then a little jam is spooned in the little crevises and a loose icing drizzled over....
If I had some left over....I could share.... Judi xoxo
