DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolve yeast in warm water.
  • Heat milk and turn off heat. Add butter and Crisco to melt and cool milk.
  • If you have a large Kitchen Aid Mixer, add all ingredients except beaten egg and sesame seeds. If not, you will need to mix all in a large bowl and knead by hand.
  • Add enough flour to make a soft slightly sticky dough.
  • Knead 10 minutes in mixer or with oiled hands.
  • Allow to rise until double in bulk. Around 2 hours.
  • Oil hands and punch down. Pull off a hunk of dough and roll out with your hands to a long rope.
  • Slice on the diagonal in 5 inch pieces. Make sticks or circles or braid three pieces together, if desired.
  • Place on a cookie sheet an inch apart.
  • Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until light brown.
