little clingy to fingers.

let rise until double in bulk.  Punch dough down, turn out onto board,

knead a few times to press out air bubbles, cut in half & cover with

towel to let riest 10-15 minutes.


Shape the dough into two round or oval ooaves & place on a greased

baking sheet which has been dusted with cornmeal.  You may cut a cross

or other design in the tops with a sharp knife.  Cover & let rise until

almost double in size.  Brush with glaze.  Bake in preheated oven 375

degrees for 15 minutes.  Turn oven to 350 degrees for another 20-25

minutes or until bottoms sound hollow when tapped.  Cool on rack.
