On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into an 18" x 3" rectangle, about 1 1/4" thick. Cut dough into three 18" strips. With lightly oiled hands, roll each strip into a 28" rope, about 1" thick. Place ropes side by side on a greased baking sheet. Loosely braid ropes (A). Bring ends together and form into a circle. Pinch ends together and tuck under to seal.
Cover and let rise, but do not allow to double, (Dough will rise during baking.) Glaze lightly.
Bake in a preheated 375° oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and bread sounds hollow when tapped, glazing lightly after 10 and 20 minutes of baking, (About halfway through baking, cover browned areas with foil if needed.) Let cool 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack.
Tie ribbon around seam and make a bow insert flowers if desired.
"I must say this is the best recipe software I have ever owned."
"Your DVO cookbook software saves me time and money!"
"I saw lots of recipe software for PC computers but I was having a hard time finding really good mac recipe software. I'm so glad I discovered Cook'n! It's so nice to have all my recipes in a computer recipe organizer. Cook'n has saved me so much time with meal planning and the recipe nutrition calculator is amazing!!!
My favorite is the Cook'n Recipe App.
