Pinch the tip collectively and tuck it underneath in order that it seems good.
Repeat with the second half of the dough. Cover each loaves evenly with plastic wrap and permit to rise for one more hour or so, till doubled. Finally, brush with egg wash after which bake at 350* F for about 40 minutes, or till golden brown and hole sounding when tapped.
