Place on a greased baking sheet. Combine egg and 1 tablespoon water brush on roll. Repeat procedure for the other half of dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, until almost doubled, about 30 minutes. Brush with egg wash prick surface well with a toothpick to prevent blistering. Bake in a preheated 325° F oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until well browned. Remove from baking sheet cool on wire racks. Serve thinly sliced.
