7- Using a fork, gently press on the edges of the Fatira to decorate it.
8- Using a knife, gently trace a cross on the surface of the Fatiras then brush them with the remaining egg mixture.
9- Place the Fatiras on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
10- Bake the Fatiras in a preheated oven at 180°C (356°F) for 25 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm.
