  • 3 dl milk, warm half of it with
  • 50 g butter and mix with the rest of the cold milk
  • pour over the flour
  • 1 whisked egg, 2/3 of it you pour into the milkbutter in the flour
  • and mix it well
  • mix all of it well
  • and work it until you get a nice dough
  • let rest for 1-2 hours under a towel, under a blanket
  • work again
  • and let rest for another 1-2 hours
  • make to thin rolls of the dough
  • that you cross
  • and braid
  • let go on the baking tray for another 30 minutes
  • coat it with the remaining whisked egg
  • bake in the oven at 180 degree Celsius for 30-40 minutes
