Sunday was our dear friend Pete’s birthday. Well Pete just happens to be Greek. We met him and his wonderful family about 20 years ago, not too long after they moved here from Athens. They are truly some of the nicest people I have ever met, or as my husband says “Pete is good people”. Yes, it’s grammatically incorrect on purpose. ;)
Next you have to separate the dough in two pieces, 1/3 and 2/3. Put the 1/3 piece into a plastic bag in the refrigerator to chill. Form the remaining 2/3 into a boule, which is a tight ball, pinching the ends underneath so that the dough will bake up into a ball and not spread out. Then place it on the cookie sheet, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise another 60-90 minutes.When the dough is ready to be baked, you remove the chilled dough from the refrigerator and separate into two piece. Roll into 10″ ropes and criss cross across the top of the dough ball. Cut the ends of the ropes and curl up.
