Муравейник

Думаю что больше слов не надо :)

Myraveinik

Тесто:
-0,5 стакана сахара
-3 яйца
-5 ст. ложек масла растопить
-1 чайная ложка соды с уксусом
-щепотка соли
-3 стакана муки

Крем:
-Банку сгущенки варить 1 1/2 часа ПОСЛЕ закипания воды. Полностью остудить
-200 г масла
-3 столовых ложки мёда

Тесто:
Замесить крутое тесто. Разделить на 4 кусочка. Положить тесто в морозильник на ночь. Pротивень смазать маслом. Натереть тесто тонким слоем прямо на протвень, по одному кусочку на противень, страясь чтобы не было сплошного “коржа”, а отдельные кусочки. Выпекать при температуре 350F, до золотистого цвета, минут 8-10. Пока тесто еще тёплое, переложить в большую миску и поломать на маленькие кусочки.

Крем:
Всё ингредиенты для крема взбить миксером до однордной массы. Хорошенечко перемешать крем с кусочками теста. Выложить получившуюся массу на терелку/блюдо и руками сформировать горочку. Горочку стоит плотно утрамбовать, легче всего делать это смочив руки водой. Муравейнику нужно дать пропитаться хотя бы один день.
