      Place seam-side-down on prepared cookie sheet; twist into a circle, join ends, pinch to seal.

      With scissors or sharp knife make cuts about three-fourths of the way through the dough, 1 inch apart. Repeat with remaining dough.
    13. 13
      Cover; let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, about 30-40 minutes.
    14. 14
