4. Knead the dough well, cover with the lid and leave for an hour.

5. When the dough fits, we divide it into 2 parts - most of it is rolled out in a triangle with a semi-oval shaft for the head.

6. The second part is divided into 2 parts - first we roll our hands into an oval - we form a beard and cut strips for a beard into 1 cm with a sharp knife or scissors.

7. From the remaining piece of dough we make a mustache, hat, nose and pompon. 

8. Combine all the parts of the dough so that the face of Santa Claus turns out, and make eyes out of raisins.
