Braided Bird Wreath

During this cold weather, please don't forget our feathered friends. Here's an easy treat you can make for them. They'll flock to this treat, and you'll enjoy watching them!

1 lb. frozen bread dough, thawed
peanut butter
wild birdseed

Roll out dough into a 30" rope. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into thirds lengthwise and braid. Place braided dough on a greased baking sheet, forming a circle. Seal the edges of dough by pinching them together. Cover with a clean dish towel and let rise one hour or until double in size. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 or 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheet and let cool. Spread peanut butter on top of wreath and sprinkle with birdseed. Hang outside for the birds to enjoy.

Bet your little birdies will LOVE you. I love watching the birds, too. We have lots of birds as we live in the woods.
