4/ on a non adhesive (teflon coated)cooking plate or on a cooking paper, put some prepared mixture so that you make 2 or 3 large circles of 10 cenimeter (4 inches) diameter each.
5/ Put in the heated oven and get them out when they are browned. with a metal spatula, put them on their middle on a round stick (such as a pastry roller)while they are still hot so that they bind themselves.
