1/2 Master Bread Dough -- fresh or thawed
1 tablespoon water
Sesame or poppy seeds
Divide dough into three equal pieces. Roll each piece to 16-inch rope.
On greased baking sheet, braid three ropes together; pinch ends to seal. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 90 minutes.
Beat egg with water; brush on braid. Sprinkle with sesame or poppy seed. Bake at 400ÂºF for 25 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; cool on wire rack.
