Preheat oven to 425°F. Lay dough out on lightly floured surface (can use leftover dry mixture to flour) and knead for about 5 minutes. Roll out into a 9x13-inch rectangle. Cut 9-inch strips and shape into logs. Shape into a circle and twist the ends twice. Then fold down on the bottom part of the circle. Brush with eggs and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
