Kis forKnead

Kneading is a way of mixing ingredients together to form dough. Kneading warms the dough slightly, and breaks the proteins in the flour down into gluten strands. When dough is kneaded enough it has a smooth, elastic texture. Dough that hasn't been kneaded enough won't rise as well when it is cooking, and will be hard instead of soft and fluffy.
