  13. Divide the dough in half.
  14. Lightly flour your hands and shape/roll the first piece of dough into a log shape, 14 to 15 inches long (36 cm).
  15. Repeat the same for the second piece of dough.
  16. Place the dough logs on the parchment paper, side by side and push down lightly to flatten the bottom of the log a little.The top should remain a little rounded.

Notes
The top may crack a little after coming out of the oven the first time. This is okay and expected.
