  2. Turn in the leftover leaves that are left over from the baking tray and butter them one by one. Spread the remaining leaves on top, buttering them again one by one.
  3. Cut the protruding crust sheets around the pan and carve into pieces, making sure to cut all the leaves.
  4. Take the butter and carefully spread the surface. Then sprinkle with a little water and bake at 160 ° C for about 45 minutes without air, so that the crust sheets turn brown.
