What is an open shot

Other names:

The end is the seam that is created when the dough is shaped (e.g. round molding, long molding). A smooth surface is created on one side of the dough piece, and the finish is created on the opposite side.

Dough pieces can then be baked with the end up or down, depending on whether they are to be baked with the end down or up. Baking with the end up (cooking with the end down) creates a rustically cracked crust. When baking with the bottom end (cooking with the top end) either a very smooth crust is created or the crust tears open at the incisions.
