Method of production:

Roll out a rectangle of the desired thickness and cut the appropriate strips. Turn the fireproof dish upside down, cover with foil or paper if necessary and carefully grease the entire surface. Knit the strips of dough on the greased base using a chosen method, carefully cutting out the unnecessary ends that you can roll out again. Secure with pressure, and if this is not enough, fix with toothpicks. You can also invest a dose of creativity by cutting out dough shapes (for example, in the shape of a leaf). When the whole dish is covered, press the top, ie. the future bottom, to be flat, spread with beaten egg with water and place in a preheated 180 ° C to 220 ° C (depending on the dough) oven. Bake until golden brown. If you want, at the same time shape and bake the handle for the basket. It is attached with toothpicks when the basket cools down. This is much more difficult with soda dough. Separate from the base, leave to cool and you're done with the holiday surprise. If you have not planned to serve within the next 24 hours, then after complete cooling, you must place the basket in an envelope.
