Roll each roll into a 9-inch rope. Make a loop. Put one end of the dough through the center. The long end of the knot will be the dove’s tail, and the other end will be the dove’s head. Place on a sprayed baking sheet.
With scissors, cut 3 slashes in the widest end and spread to form tail feathers. In the head, cut a place for the beak and press a slivered almond in it. Brush with egg, cover with plastic wrap and let rise for about 20 minutes.
Remove wrap and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and press cloves into the heads for the eyes.
