  4. Heat the oven to 200 ° C and bake there a sliced ​​dough sheet for 12 minutes, until golden brown. Scrap the scraps that remain, also bake and grind them into crumbs.
  5. As soon as you remove the sand base from the oven, immediately go through the cuts again with a knife so that they do not stick together.
  6. Make syrup from water and sugar.
  7. Beat the whites in a lush foam (add a pinch of salt to them), without ceasing to whip, add still hot sugar syrup. Do not stop whisking for another 15 minutes.
