2 c Milk, scalded
1 Yeast cake
2 Egg yolks, beaten
1 ts Salt
1/2 c Sugar
5 c To 6 flour
1/2 c Butter
Cool milk to lukewarm. Add yeast and 1 teaspoon of the sugar; let
stand 10 minutes. Add egg yolks, salt, sugar and cardamom; mix well.
Stir in flour to make a soft dough. Let raise about an hour. Roll out
dough quite thin adding more flour if necessary. Spread dough with
butter; cut into three strips; fold each strip so that the butter is
on the inside; braid the strips. Cut into loaves or make a wreath.
Let raise again about an hour; brush top with egg whites and sprinkle
with sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.
