Cut some portions and give them a shape like balls. Form the tree with the dough balls in a decreasing number, i.e., put 3-4 balls on the bottom, then one less and so on until reach the top with just one ball. Place it in the baking tray with a sheet of baking paper. Leave a bit of the dough to make the “trunk”. Paint with a beaten egg and let it rise till triple in size. Bake until browning at 200ºC.
