   Recipe by: Jo Anne Merrill In a small bowl, place warm
   water and yeast until yeast is softened. In a large
   bowl, combine sugar, salt, salad oil, 3 eggs slightly
   beaten and about 3-4 cups of flour. Mix with the yeast
   mixture, adding more flour if needed, to make a
   workable dough. Knead until smooth and elastic. Do not
   underknead. Place in an oiled bowl and turn to oil
   top. Cover and let rise until doubled in size. Punch
   down the dough and divide in half. Cut each half into
   3 equal parts.
   Roll each part into a strip 15-inches long. Place 3
   strips on a greased baking sheet. Braid, fastening
   strips at each end. Repeat with second half of dough.
   Beat remaining egg slightly and brush tops and sides
   of dough. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake in
   preheated 325 degree oven for 30-40 minutes.
