Cut slices of bread from one to two inches thick. Remove the brown part of the crust. Cut each trimmed slice into two oblongs or two triangles, for large croustades, or into four squares or four triangles, for small croustades. Or shape the bread with cookie cutters into circles, diamonds, etc. Insert the point of a sharp knife into the top of the shaped piece, one-half inch from the edge, and cut around the outline, running the knife down to within one-half inch of the bottom. Insert the knife point horizontally through one side of the slice, one-half inch from the bottom, and cut out and remove the center, leaving a box with half-inch walls and bottom. Fry these cases in deep fat, (375°-390° F.) or, if you prefer, brush them over with melted fat and set them in a moderate oven (350°-400° F.) to brown.
