Dissolve yeast in warm water in warmed mixer
bowl. Add salt, butter, and flour. Attach bowl
and PowerKnead™ Spiral Dough Hook to mixer.
Turn to Speed 2 and mix about 1 minute, or until

longer. Dough will be sticky.
Place dough in greased bowl, turning to grease
top. Cover. Let rise in warm place, free from
draft, about 1 hour, or until doubled in bulk.
Punch dough down and divide in half. Roll each
half into 12 x 15" (30 x 37 cm) rectangle. Roll
dough tightly, from longest side, tapering ends if
desired. Place loaves on greased baking sheets
that have been dusted with cornmeal. Cover. Let
rise in warm place, free from draft, about 1 hour,
or until doubled in bulk.
With sharp knife, make 4 diagonal cuts on top of
each loaf. Bake at 450°F (230°C) for 25 minutes.
Remove from oven. Beat egg white and water
together with a fork. Brush each loaf with egg
mixture. Return to oven and bake 5 to
10 minutes longer. Remove from baking sheets
immediately and cool on wire racks.
