Apple braid

1 c. evaporated milk
2 T butter
1/4 c. . sugar
1 t. salt
1 T. yeast
1/4 c. warm water
21/2-3 c. flour


4 1/2 c. sliced apples peeled
1/2 c. sugar
1 t. cinnamon

1 c. powdered sugar
1-2 T. milk

In bowl mix milk, butter, salt together. In separate cup mix warm water, yeast and sugar. Let set until bubbly. Add to milk mixture with 1 1/2 c. flour. Add enough flour to make a soft dough just barely firm enough to handle. (The softer you can make it, the more tender it will be)

Let raise until double in oiled bowl.
When dough is almost doubled prepare apples mixing sugar, peeled apples and cinnamon together.
When dough is doubled divide in 2. Roll out on cookie tray one half of dough to a wide rectangle about 10 in wide, place 1/2 of the apple filling down the center. then using a sharp knife cut strips (not quite to the filling) down each side. Then carefully seal ends with the end strips, and then using the others pull them up to form a fake braid look, crisscrossing one another over the apples. You can brush with beaten egg if you like a egg wash look also. Let raise about 10 min. and bake in a 350 oven about 20-30 min, or until brown on underneath and apples are tender. Cool on wire rack

When cool mix powdered sugar and milk to form a thin icing. Drizzle over top of braids thinly.
Serves 8-10
