- Divide the dough into 4 equal sections.
- Roll each section into a 18" x 4" rectangle and cut into 4" x 1" strips.
- Danish: Place two strips together and twist. Shape into a ring and gently pinch the edges together. Transfer to a greased baking sheet. Repeat until there is no more dough strips left.
