Turn dough out onto lightly floured work surface and press out to 7" round, about 1/2" thick. Using 2" diameter biscuit cutter dipped in flour, cut out rounds.  Gather dough scraps; press out to 1/2" thickness and cut out additional rounds.  Transfer dough rounds to baking sheet.  Brush biscuit tops with some of egg glaze.  Sprinkle with cracked coriander seeds.  

Bake biscuits until golden brown, about 20 minutes.  Cool on rack.  Serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
