Polish Paska

 It's that time of year again and with temperatures already reaching 80, Spring/Summer is here and Easter is close behind. Time to bake Polish paska.
You can find the recipe and step by step instructions here:
The dough is a bit sticky but it is really easy to work with.

I lightly sprinkled the counter with flour but it really didn't need it.

The recipe makes three loaves.

Rolling and braiding is fun too and even though I remembered to take pics of it, light room refused to load that one.

Cover them with plastic while they rise.
I brush them with an egg yolk glaze before they bake to give them a nice color.

These are all going to the after school kids today to eat with apple butter spread on each slice.  They are getting maple baked beans too.
