Preheat oven to approx. 200-220°C. Pour all ingredients into a mixing bowl and knead well. Remove the dough and work through with a little flour.
Use more or less liquid or flour to check the soft, malleable consistency.
Form a roll, cut 15 pieces, form small rolls or brioches and place them on a floured baking tray. Cover and let "rise" for 20 minutes.
Spread with mixed egg yolk and sprinkle with sesame seeds, poppy seeds or nuts and bake for 15 minutes until golden brown. Leave to cool on a grid.
You can also use this dough as a sweetener and for small nut snails, curd cheese, croissants, nut or poppy plait or for Carinthian Reindling with cinnamon and nut filling.
