ABED french bread question
I made the french bread and took some off to make a loaf this morning. When I went to shape it, the dough was very cold and the book cautions you to use a light hand. However, the dough was so cold it felt like playdough when I was forming it.
My question is with these recipes, should I take the dough out of the fridge and leave it for a while before shaping to warm up?
