Preparation steps

1.

For the dough, slit vanilla beans lengthwise, scrape out seeds and both boil along with rosemary in milk. Let simmer for about 5 minutes, then remove from heat. Let cool until lukewarm and remove vanilla beans and rosemary.

2.

Mix dry yeast with milk and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Let sit 15 minutes. Sift flour into a bowl and mix into yeast mixture. Mix using a hand mixer with a bread hook for about 5 minutes to form a dough. Divide dough into 2 equal pieces, roll both pieces out to about 50 cm (approximately 20-inch) long strands and twist them together into a spiral. Place spiral on a greased baking sheet and bend into a wreath. Cover with a cloth and let sit for 20 minutes.

3.

To prepare, mix egg yolk with milk and brush surface of dough. Use kitchen shears to cut waves in dough surface. Place wreath in a preheated oven at 200°C (approximately 400°F) until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool, brush with lemon juice and sprinkle with icing sugar. Thread satin ribbon through wreath and knot so that ends about 20 cm (approximately 8 inches) long stick out. Tie these together into a bow and knot. Let dry for 1–2 days, then hang as a decoration.
