    Lainey6605's Note:

    This is a recipe my mother-in-law and I used to make for Christmas. It was her recipe and hopefully I have deciphered everything correctly from her recipe card. The dough has to refrigerate overnight (not included in preparation time). This recipes may seem complicated but it is really not that difficult. It makes a lovely dessert or breakfast for special occasions or holidays. The braids can be frozen for a couple months. This recipe makes a lot so you can share with others.

      These are absolutely wonderful! Very easy to make too, which makes them even more special. I'm sure I'll be making these again and again. I used them as Valentine's Day gifts for my friends and they all absolutely raved about them. Thanks for posting Lainey! Made for the I Recommend Tag Game - prize for December 2008's most completed tags.
