Formatting Mini Song-Books in Dorico

Like the topic says, I’ll need to be creating a mini song-book
My idea that I had in mind, is format them on “Statement” size pages, as a “Statement” dimension in dorico is 5.5 x 8.5, exactly half of a Letter-sized paper, and then print it out on Landscape Letter Paper, but make it to where you can fold the stack in half, staple it, and it will be a “book”, with pages still being 1…2…3…4…5, when you read the front and back of pages. Does all that make sense?
I know for that format, you can’t just align “1, 2, 3, 4” next to each other on the page. Is there a way to format all that in Dorico? Or do I need to use a different software for workaround?

The best way is just to create your pages in the ‘normal’ way, make a PDF, and then use software to print the PDF pages as a booklet.

Or indeed that!

Dorico built-in Booklet printing function can do the job well.
Or you can check out great PDF tools from Notation Central.
