To make the cookies work a dough ball first (keep the other in the refrigerator). Allow the dough to stand 10 minutes at room temperature before using
Place the dough on a clean surface with flour and with a rolling pin flatten until obtaining a dough with 1/2 cm of thickness (make sure that the dough does not stick to the surface).
With cutters of man biscuits cut the dough and place in baking trays previously greased with vegetable spray. Leave a little space between each cookie. Repeat with the other ball of dough.
Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned and crispy. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before decorating.
To make the bitumen mix the glass sugar with the lemon and milk and add a little water if necessary, a very thick bitumen is necessary to decorate the calacas on the cookies.
Use a pastry bag to decorate the cookies with the white bitumen and let it dry before painting on it or decorating the caulina as a catrina.

sabrosas galletas Buenas noches  realizamos las galletas y me surgieron algunas dudas   1.-  porque las galletas quedaron un poco duras¿se deberá al tiempo de horneado?.  2.-  La cobertura no se logra extender de manera fácil, realmente cuesta un poco de trabajo.  ¿cuál es la razon de esto? ¿cuándo se endurece le agregamos mas agua?    me gustaria que me dieran respuesta para volver a hacerlas nuevamente.
