    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a baking tray.

    6. Cut the dough out into rounds and arrange on the prepared baking tray and brush with reserved egg to glaze.
    7. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes until risen and golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving.
