3. Add a pinch of nutmeg and turmeric to the sifted flour, pour in the dough, egg mixture, mix everything and add lemon juice with soft butter.

4. Knead the dough for 15 minutes. At first it will stick to your hands, then it becomes elastic (do not add any more flour). Try not to warm the dough in your hands.

5. Cover and place in a warm place. To speed up this process, you can put the dough in a warm oven preheated to no higher than 50 degrees.

8. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, raisins, cranberries, candied fruit, dried apricots (finely chopped), and nuts if desired.
