Set the balls of dough on an oiled surface. Be sure the dough is well-oiled so that it won't dry out. If making a large quantity as I was here, you might want to cover the dough loosely with plastic as well. Allow the dough to rest a few minutes before working with it in the next step.
The balls of dough shown here are about the size of apricots or small plums and will yield 4" to 5” square msemen. You can make msemen any size you like, but I prefer to make them small so that I can fit more onto a griddle or into a pan to cook at one time. If you'll be cooking msemen one by one, you might want to make them larger and set up several pans.
