Recipe for Fancy Shapes in Dough

Recipe for Shaping Fancy Symbols from Dough: Shaping Dough

INGREDIENTS: (from “Traditional Recipes for Korovai” by The Ukrainian Museum)

4 cups regular flour

2 egg whites

1 cup milk

2 tablespoons oil

Mix all the ingredients into a dense dough and knead for about 15-30 minutes. Place in a plastic bag and refrigerate overnight. When ready to use, take small pieces at a time to form symbols. Place prepared decorations on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet and bake/dry in a 200 degree oven for 1 to 1 ½ hours. Remove from the oven and immediately make a hole in the bottom of each symbol with a toothpick or skewer. Leave the toothpick to use to attach the symbol to the bread when ready. In the meantime, stick the items into a styrofoam board, an egg carton or a pan with holes in it to cool and to keep safe until used.]
