Cooking house. Cut out from the second layer of dough two rectangles measuring approximately 12 x 17 cm for the roof, two large squares and 2 smaller rectangles for the walls of the house.
Roll out the remaining dough into a circle with a diameter of about 30 cm, level the edges with a sharp knife. Bake the resulting circle as described above, let cool.
To build a house, fold the baked rectangles together, glue them with a glaze along the seam, put them on a baked circle – “ground”. Glazed and decorated figurines glaze to the “ground”.
And finally, if desired, you can decorate the “ground” with ground pistachios (grass) or roughly ground almonds (stones).
