1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar (optional)

Making dough for Easter basket

Mix milk and water, take 2 Tbsp of the mixture and add yeast, leave for a few minutes to rise.

Add the egg, the remaining water with milk mixture, olive oil, salt, sugar, and mix thoroughly.

Gradually add flour, about a half of a cup, knead until the mixture is soft, and leave for some time to rise and double the volume.

When the dough is ready, divide it into pieces and make strips for weaving the Easter basket.

Prepare a heat-resistant glass bowl, the diameter for a large basket is about 22 cm or 8 1/2 inch. Turn the bowl upside down, brush it with oil and create the basket using a simple weaving technique.

Decide what goes into the basket. Decorated eggs, marshmallow and chocolate treats, jellybeans and other confectionery delights are great for decorating dough baskets for Easter. These sweet concoctions linger in the children mind long after the celebration. A few small toys or stuffed bunnies and chicks, ribbons and lace pieces complete these wonderful edible decorations that will surprise and delight kids and adults.
