  From: For the dough: Put the water in a mixing bowl
  and sprinkle the yeast over it. Stir until the yeast has dissolved.
  Beat the egg into the yeast mixture, and set aside.
  Sift together the flour, sugar, and salt. Add the yeast mixture.
  Knead until the mix forms a ball- if too moist add a bit more flour.
  Knead 10 minutes more.
  Roll out to an 11" square. Spread 1/2 cup butter over the surface of
  the dough. Fold the dough into thirds and wrap in a damp cloth.
  Refrigerate 20 minutes. Repeat this process beginning from rolling
  out the dough, two more times.
  While the dough is in the refrigerator the last time, you should
  prepare the fillings, icings or other recipes you will need for the
  finished pastries.
  The following parts will give you the variety of pastries made with
  this dough, and the methods. They will be followed by additional

  currants and spoon the Vanilla Cream into the 1" space between the
  edges. Repeat with second strip. Place both lengths of dough on a
  baking sheet and shape strips together like a giant pretzel, tucking
  in the ends. Brush with the egg wash and sprinkle with almonds. Allow
