Roll each portion out to 2 inch wide, 16 inch long strands . Lay strands side by side. Lay on Parchment paper. Braid the 3 strands together, criss/cross until all dough is braided and pinch the ends together. Slide the loaf with the parchment paper onto a baking sheet.

Dough will sound hollow....May take a little longer depending on your oven. Enjoy
