Braid Shape: Using three equal strands, pinch together at top, braid, not too tightly, pinch ends, and tuck under.
Batons: Shape the piece of dough into a long oval shape. Slash the surface with three diagonal cuts just before baking.
Cottage Rolls: Divide the dough into two unequal pieces (two-thirds and one-third). Shape each into a ball; ﬂatten a bit. Place the smaller on top of the larger, and make a hole through the center with handle of a wooden spoon.
Knots: Shape the piece into one long rope; tie a single knot, pulling the ends through.

oil? Can this be made with oil instead of margarine?
Sure. You might have to add more flour though.
A really big hit!! I made them for a simcha sudah, and everyone really enjoyed them!
