French Bread with a Christmas Twist

Here is the Candy Cane French Bread I made:

I love my French Bread Recipe:

1 ¼ cup warm water

1 Tablespoon yeast

1 Tablespoon sugar

1 Tablespoon shortening, melted

1 ½ teaspoons salt

3 ½ cups flour

1 beaten egg

Pour water into large bowl. Sprinkle in yeast. Stir in sugar, shortening, and salt. Add flour 1 cup at a time. Knead until smooth (5 minutes). Rise double (60 minutes). Shape into long loaf. Rise double again. Make slash marks on top of loaf and wash with egg. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until golden. Should sound hollow when tapped.

I just added food coloring to half of the dough and twisted it for Christmas fun!
