Dissolve yeast in warm water. Cream 3 tablespoons butter, sugar, salt, cardamom, and vanilla. Add milk, eggs, and yeast beat well. Add flour until a soft dough is formed knead until no longer sticky, using as little extra flour as possible. Place in a greased bowl, cover with a clean damp towel, and let rise until double in bulk. Turn onto a lightly-floured pastry cloth or board and let rest 15 minutes. Divide into thirds for 3 braids. For each braid, divide dough into 3 equal parts. Roll each into a 12-inch strand place close together on a lightly-greased cookie sheet. Braid the strands loosely, starting from the middle and braiding to each end. This will give a more symmetrical braid. Fasten ends and tuck under securely. Brush with butter and let rise until double in size brush with milk if planning to frost. Bake in a preheated 375° F oven 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.
*Blend confectioners' sugar, water, and almond extract. Drizzle glaze over braids and sprinkle with coarse sugar or chopped almonds.
