Then, roll out the dough portions on a lightly floured board and cut out circles with a glass or a mold. We can use another method, i.e. form rolls from the dough and cut it into pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and roll it out into a round cake. Decide for yourself which way is most convenient for you.
