  1. Mix yeast and warm water, and let sit so that the yeast can react. The yeast should begin to foam.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together.
  3. In a small saucepan, heat milk, rosewater, butter, and egg yolks. Be careful not to let the eggs cook and become solid.
  4. Mix yeast/water with dry ingredients. When thoroughly incorporated, mix in milk/egg mixture until a dough is formed.
  5. Knead dough, then cover, and let rise about 20 minutes, or until the dough has doubled in size.(Times vary depending on warmth of environment.).
  6. Punch down the dough and form into the desired shape (one or two braided loaves, rolls, etc.). Again, cover and let double in size.
  7. Bake bread at 350 for about 20 minutes. (If making rolls, you may need to adjust the time.).
