2 ts yeast
1 1/3 cups warm water
3 tbs honey
4-5 tbs olive oil
3 ts anise seeds
2 ts salt
4 cups flour
1/3 fine semolina
1 egg white beaten
1 ts water
3 tbs sesame seeds
Activate the yeast with the water and honey.
Add the rest of the ingredients and knead until a soft satiny dough is formed.
I usually just rise my dough in the same bowl I kneaded it in without oiling it, however some people do transfer to an oiled bowl.
Let it double.
Shape into rounds and rise again until doubled.
Sprinkle with seeds after it's doubled.
You can flute the edges as I have seen that done, I don't do it but it's pretty if you want to.
Brush your wash on and bake at 375 for about 40 minutes, it should sound hollow when it's tapped and be a beautiful golden color.
