Throwing ice cubes on the floor of the oven and cooling on a rack, uncovered, makes the bread crusty.



Roll dough out into a circle about 15 inches in diameter. Place a soup plate upside down in the middle of the circle. Using a knife or a pair of scissors, cut strips from the edge to the plate all around the circle. Remove the plate, and separate the strips from each other so that the bread looks like the sun. You can then twist the strips if you like. Brush the whole surface with beaten egg. L
