1 Sprinkle yeast over water. DO NOT USE TEMPERATURES ABOVE 110 F. Mix well. Let stand 5 minutes; stir. Set aside for

3 Add flour and yeast solution. Mix at low speed 1 minute or until all flour mixture is incorporated into liquid.
4 Add shortening; mix at low speed 1 minute. Continue mixing at medium speed 10 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic.
Dough temperature should be 78 F. to 82 F.
5 FERMENT: Cover. Set in a warm place (80 F.) about 1-1/2 hours or until double in bulk.
6 PUNCH: Divide dough into 2 pound 2 ounce pieces; shape into a rectangular piece. Let rest 10 to 20 minutes. (If using D 036 01,

10 Cut dough into 17 2-1/2-inch pieces. Make 3 cuts, 3/4-inch in depth, on sealed side of each piece to form a claw.
11 Place on lightly greased sheet pans in rows 3 by 8. Spread claws slightly. Claws should not touch each other.
