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.
