Another one cookie recipe for this month's challenge by Swathi Iyer of baking partners group.This is an awesome cookie looks like sandwich filled with yummy jam inside.I enjoyed a lot to make it but the interesting part is after finishing my cookies.
I took a lovely photograph in my sony cybershot camera but don't know where it has gone when I searched 2 days later.It haven't saved the picture at all I think.Haa.........I blinked a while becoz the cookie box was empty ohhhh.... I forgot I reserved a cookie for me somewhere in kitchen.I ran into the kitchen and atlast found it inside a small box........And clicked it Now I rechecked the pic.It was good.
