Ukrainian Easter Bread

Josie got this off the Internet about 3 years ago.  This is one bread that she likes to make.

1 cup warm water (110º – 115º)

1 Tablespoon yeast

1/2 cup warm milk

1/2 cup butter

1/2 Tablespoon salt

1/2 cup sugar

2 egg yolks

1 whole egg

5-6 cups flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water, milk, and sugar.  After it has proofed, add remaining ingredients, except for the whole egg.  Knead until dough is elastic and not sticky.  Cover and let rise until doubled.  Divide dough into 3 portions.  Knead it until it is smooth.  Cover and let it rise again 1/2 hour or so.  Divided each portion into 3 pieces.  Roll into ropes and then braid the bread.  Tuck in ends and place braids on ungreased baking sheet.  Beat one egg and brush on loaves.  Let dough rise for an hour or so until double.  Bake at 350º for 15 – 17 minutes.
