Ingredients

  • 2

    packages active dry yeast

  • 2

    cups warm milk (110 degrees F)

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • 2

    teaspoons cardamom

  • 7

    cups flour

  • 1/2

    cup butter softened

  • 2

    teaspoons salt

  • Glaze:

  • 1

    egg, slightly beaten

  • 1/2

    cup sliced almonds

  • 1/2

    cup crushed lump sugar

Directions

Dissolve yeast in milk in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs, sugar, cardamom, and 2-1/2 cups of the flour. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Beat in butter and salt. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on floured surface until smooth. Cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled. Punch down and form into 6 long strands. Braid together 3 strands for each loaf. Cover loosely and let rise again until puffy but not doubled. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle on the almonds and sugar. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden.
