  5. Then measure out 2-ounce portions and roll the dough between your hands or on a countertop to form sticks that are 7 inches long.

  6. Place the dough on parchment paper-lined baking sheets, cover and set asidefor 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until the dough doubles in size again.

  7. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
