  • Starting at one end of the dough and working toward the other end, take the end of a strip from each side and slightly crisscross them in the middle of the loaf overlapping in a slight herringbone pattern.
  • Cover again and let double in size.
  • Heat oven to 375°F
  • Brush the beaten Egg on the risen bread.
  • Bake for 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown.
