Pre-heat bakery butter. The more the butter, the more the desert is nourishing. Pour pre-heated butter into baking container and make sure it was apply onto inner side of container completely. Put dough into same container and even its surface. It is good to keep the pastry thickness between 1-1.5 inches. You may top it with any seeds of your choice all over the surface.
