For the baskets: 80 gr. Bra Duro Perla, 80 gr. Tender Bra Perla, a knob of Perla butter.

To prepare the baskets, coarsely grate the two types of cheese Perla, mix them up and divide them into four parts. Perla butter a baking dish and cover it with a parchment, then lie down two cheese discs of 16-18 cm approximately. Brown them in the oven (upper part) at 200°C for a few minutes, remove them immediately and put them in cups, so that they take the proper basket shape.
