Round or square?
Baskets can be round or square - in the form of a new silicone successfully turn out both options. The main question - how you plan to serve. If baskets are prepared for cocktails as guests in one hand hold the glasses, and the other taking a snack, something more practical to cook a small round basket at one bite.

Square products, of course, looks impressive, but it's still an appetizer for two or three bites, from which will scatter pieces of crispy dough everywhere - hardly any hostess is nice to see it on your floor. Still, square baskets appropriately if the guests will be in the hands of small plates or napkins, or if the file canapes on buffet table.

Prepare well in advance.
No one wants to spend a lot of time for the final preparations before the holiday, so we offer to prepare and bake baskets before and pass on storage in a sealed container, dense enough that the products are not damaged.

Salmon, mushrooms and red peppers for stuffing can also be prepared in advance and fill the baskets themselves about an hour before delivery, in front of which starters will need to warm up.

Layers exhaust test, with which you are not working at the moment, keep in plastic wrap and a damp cloth, because it dries out the dough very quickly, and it becomes difficult to work with. Also, do not overdo it with melted butter, promazyvaya layers of dough, otherwise the workpiece would lose during baking crispy texture.
