I make this recipe every week now and I think it is outstanding. One point of disagreement with the reviewers here - yes the dough is sticky, but adding so much additional flour changes the texture away from the tender and light qualities of the original. I've found that if I am diligent about having floured hands and a floured board (but not too much flour!) the stickiness problem drops considerably. It also helps to divide the recipe into 3 loaves rather than 2, and to flour a pastry cutter to help transfer the loaves onto the baking stone. also, to get a super shiny glaze, egg wash once after braiding, and a second time after rising. enjoy!
