Yeast-dough ‘people’ of Westphalia

Looking through the old newspaper about cooking I’ve found that nice “people”. I’ve modified the recipe a lot. The dough is elastic, not sticks to hands and is perfect for baking those “people”. I really like playing with yeast dough like that.

400g flour (I used bread flour type 850)

3/4 cup water (not cold)

1/4 cup oli

1 tsp sugar

2 tsp salt

2 tsp dry yeast

Melt the yeast in 1/4 cup of water (in the bowl you will use for making the dough). Add sugar and 2 spoons of flour. When it comes a little floamy add the rest of the ingredients. Make smooth and elastic dough. Leave it to grow. When it’ll be twice as it was, make it again. Now use your imagination and make people from that :). Don’t wait until it grows, grease with egg yolk and bake in 200 degrees until they’re ruddy.
