Casa de galletas de coco
Batimos un huevo, y añadimos el azúcar. Incorporamos la mantequilla blandita, la leche y el coco, y lo removemos hasta que todo quede bien mezclado. Añadimos la harina, mejor si está tamizada, y volvemos a amasar hasta tener una masa homogénea y sin grumos. Envolvemos la masa en un papel film y lo dejamos en la nevera 1 hora. A continuación, la sacamos de la nevera, la estiramos hasta formar láminas finitas, y las cortamos con la forma y el tamaño deseado para la preparación de la casa. Metemos las láminas en el horno, a media temperatura, unos 10-15 minutos (depende mucho del horno y del espesor de la masa)
y las sacamos con cuidado cuando estén doradas. Una vez horneadas todas las galletas, montamos la casa y las pegamos con caramelo líquido caliente (cuidado, no os quemeis)... Se puede decorar con glasa, gominolas o como queramos.
Nota del autor Puedes hacer esta misma receta en forma de galletitas o dándole la forma que más te guste, eso es a elección de quién las realice. Si quieres que las galletas tengan un bonito color dorado algo brillante, puedes pintarlas con huevo batido antes de meterlas en el horno.

Collage artist Vahge uses bits and pieces taken from magazines, greeting cards, books, and dolls to create gorgeous creations that evoke a Victorian flavor. The Brooklyn-based artist is inspired by Dadaism, memories from her childhood, and of course doll houses, which is evident in her work. Using media that most people throw away, Vahge has created a fantastical body of characters and tableaus, each more intricate than the next, giving new life to disused periodicals otherwise bound for the trash.
assembling cut up elements into whimsical collages at a young age. Using a heavy hand on the feminine elements of corsetry, gowns, ornate bows, and complicated hairstyles, Vahge creates a cast of paper dolls that have one foot in heaven and one in hell. Slicing and splicing faces from magazines, the artists meshes them together to form characters that are both beautiful and eerie.
