Take small pieces and create some loaves, flatten them and create some disks. Cut strips of 4 cm high and the length of about 30 cm.

Each of these must be folded in two and joined with the fingers at a distance of 3 cm to create some hollows; roll up on themselves and form the corollas of 5-8 cm diameter.

Cartellate so created must dry for 10-12 hours in a dry place.

After, in a pan with hot oil, fry 4-5 at a time, until will be golden. Then put to dry on a sheet of absorbent paper. Heat the pan with the must and immerse in cartellate without boiling.
