Easter Basket

3 cups flour
2 packs dry yeast
1 cup milk
4 TBS butter
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 egg yolks

Combine flour with yeast. Heat milk and butter. Add milk, salt and
sugar to flour mixture. Mix well. Form a ball and leave it to rise.
On a flat surface, roll three-quarters of dough with rolling pin
until you get a 10" square. Cut into 24 strips.

Lay 12 strips next to each other, and use the other 12 to weave
between them. Cover ovenproof bowl with butter. Place it upside
down on a cookie sheet. Place the strips on top of the bowl, cut
the ends. Brush the strips with egg yolk. Bake for 45 minutes in
350 oven. After 20 minutes, cover the strips with aluminum foil.
Remove from the oven and let it cool. Roll the remaining dough into
a rectangle; cut it into 3 strips (to create a rim for a basket).
Braid the strips and place them on a cookie sheet. Brush with egg
yolk and bake for 20 minutes. Gently remove basket and pin the rim
onto it with toothpicks.
