Ingredients

  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F to 115 degrees F)
  • 1 1/2 cups warm milk (110 to 115 degrees F)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened 7 cups all-purpose flour 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons water Sesame seeds

Directions

Dissolve yeast in water. Add milk, sugar, salt, eggs, butter and 3-1/2 cups flour; mix well. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. On a floured surface, knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in greased bowl; turn once to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Punch down. Cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 30 minutes. Divide into six portions. On a floured surface, shape each into a 14-in.-long rope. For each loaf, braid three ropes together on greased baking sheet; pinch ends to seal. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 50 to 60 minutes. Beat egg yolk and water; brush over loaves. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 375 degrees F for 30-35 minutes
