To shape the cookies
On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out into a rectangle of approx. 30 x 40 cm. Spread the chocolate filling on top, sprinkle with nuts, leaving a border of approx. 2 cm all the way around. Roll up the dough from a narrow end and leave to chill for approx. 30 mins. Cut the roll in half lengthwise, braid the strands with the cut sides facing up, place in the prepared cake tin. Leave to rise for a further 30 mins. Coat with soya cream before baking.
Approx. 25 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 180°C. Remove from the oven, allow to cool slightly, remove from the tin and leave to cool on a rack.
