Shtpritsvaha through metal baking pan for tolumbichki by pushing the dough with your thumb. Form which was received S- shaped caterpillar or roses, sometimes florets on a piece of pecan nut after firing sprinkled with a little icing sugar.

4 eggs
1 pm. H. Granulated sugar
1 h. H. Unrendered lard at room temperature
