“This is a combination of a couple recipes, which I've tweaked over the past few years to make it my own. Posting here so I can always find it. Note: I always use parchment paper for less mess, as the dough is very sticky and thick. From other people's notes, I've learned to just use a spatula and my wooden spoon for shaping the dough. You can of course substitute the wheat flour for all-purpose flour.”
