      Title: Bread basket
 Categories: None
      Yield: 1 Servings
  2 1/2 c  Warm water (105-115F)
      2 pk Active dry yeast
      1 tb Sugar
      1 tb Salt
      2 tb Margarine, softened
  6 1/2 c  Unsifted flour (up to 7-1/2)
      1    Egg beaten
      1 tb Milk
  Measure warm water into large warm bowl. Sprinkle in yeast; stir until
  dissolved. Add sugar, salt, margarine, and 3 cups flour; beat until
  smooth. Add enough additional flour to make a stiff dough. Turn out
  onto lightly floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8
  to 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover;
  let rise in warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk, about
  1 hour.

  inches wide. Place around edges of a 10 inch wire rack. Generously
  grease outside of a large mixer bowl (about 8 3/4 inches in diameter
  and 4 1/2 inches deep). Invert onto foil.
  Punch dough down. Divide into 24 equal pieces; set 2 aside. Roll 22
  pieces into 30-inch ropes. Twist two together; repeat with remaining
  ropes. Wrap twists of dough around bowl, beginning at bottom,
  touching foil. Pinch ends of twists to seal. Cover entire surface of

  the same diameter. Invert onto rack. Roll reserved pieces of dough to
  24-inch ropes; twist together. Place over bowl, with ends touching

       30    minutes.
  Combine egg and milk; brush mixture gently on basket and handle.
  Place in hot oven with wire racks directly on oven rack. (Do not use

  For higher glaze, brush basket and handle once during baking. Cover
  with foil, if neccessary, to prevent uneven browning.
  Remove from bowl and cool on wire racks. To serve, fasten handle onto
  basket, using toothpicks. Fill with dinner rolls.
