Step 3: Forming
Roll out the dough into a sheet of around 0.5 cm thickness.
With a pastry cutter cut into the sheet ,parallel horizontal lines -about 2cm apart.

preheat the oven to 200C.
Bake for around 8-10 minutes or till the crust turns golden brown.
Remove from the oven and allow it to completely cool.
