    1/2    To 3/4 cup warm water
      4 tb Sugar
      1 pk Active dry yeast
      2    Eggs
  2 3/4 c  All-purpose flour
    1/4 c  Cold butter or margarine,

  Crushed sugar cubes, pearl sugar and/or sliced almonds
  Combine 1/4 cup of the water, 1 tablespoon of the sugar and yeast.

  Add 1 egg and stir until blended.
  Fit processor with steel blade.  Measure flour, butter, remaining 3
  tablespoons of the sugar, salt and cardamom into work bowl. Process

  Turn on processor and very slowly drizzle just enough remaining water

  Turn dough onto lightly floured surface.  Shape into ball and place in
  lightly greased bowl, turning to grease all sides. Cover with plastic
  wrap and let stand in warm place until coubled, about 1 hour.
  Punch down dough.  Divide dough into 3 equal parts. Shape each part
  into 18-inch strand.  Braid strands together and place on greased
  cookie sheet. Tuck ends under and pinch to seal. Cover loosely with
  plastic wrap. Let stand in war place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  Heat oven to 375 F.  Beat remaining egg with fork. Brush egg over
  braid. Sprinkle with sugar and/or almonds.
  Bake until loaf is evenly brown, 20 - 25 minutes. Remove from cookie
  sheet and cool on wire rack.
