Tips

**To knead the dough, add just enough flour to the dough and your hands to keep dough from sticking.

Flatten dough and fold it toward you.

Use a little more flour if dough becomes too sticky, always working the flour into the ball of dough.

Rotate dough a quarter turn and repeat the fold, push and turn” steps.

Using the heels of your hands, push the dough away in a rolling motion.

Keep kneading the dough until it is smooth and elastic.

*If you don’t have a thermometer, water should feel very warm to the touch.
