    mixing it with a spoon. 
    Knead the dough well for about 10 minutes. 

    If too sticky, add 1-2 tablespoons more flour and mix it well.

    Flour your hands and take egg-sized portions of dough. Roll and shape them into small oval shapes. 
    Place on an unbuttcred baking sheet, and flatten them with the paim of your hand.

    Let them cool and harden for 24 hours before dipping them in the honey syrup.
