  3. Add crushed cheese, soft butter and an egg to bread crumbs. Mix all the ingredients into a homogeneous mass. As a result, the mass should easily gather in a lump. If the mass remains in the form of crumbs, add water during mixing.

    From the resulting mass, form 12 identical balls. Lubricate the cookie cutters with butter, evenly distribute the bread ball inside the cookie cutter. Bake the baskets in an oven preheated to 180 degrees for 20 minutes. Carefully remove the finished baskets from the forms, let them cool well.
