  4. Gently stir the milk into the flour a little bit at a time. The mixture will somewhat cohesive but slightly sticky. It should also start to pull away from the bowl. You may not need all of the milk.

  5. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead about 10 times or until the mixture smooth. If the dough is super sticky or sticks to the surface add a little more flour. If too dry, add milk 1 tablespoon at a time.
