Eggless Faker Almond Shortbread Cookies

Cookies are always one of the fav snack time goodies for kids . No kid will say no to cookies specially when they are drizzled with some chocolate on it . This month HBC Sharanya Pathmanathan of Just not the cake . For this month she had suggested bakes with a theme of American Food Holidays from which I chose cookies as they are my hubby like to have cookies a lot and I make them often mainly when it is short bread cookies . These were the wonderful  list of bakes suggested by sharaya : 

January 6 - National Shortbread day .

January 16 - National Fig Newton day.
January 21 - National Granola Bar day.
January 22 - National Blonde brownie day .
January 23 - National Pie day .
January 29 - National Corn chip day .

Kids also will sure love these chocolate drizzled cookie . Thanks to sharanya for suggesting this yummy recipe I and my family loved it a lot.For this week BM  I chose to cook oven baked snacks for kids and I just thought cookies are the best ever snack which kids love a lot. These are a very delicious shortbread cookies in which the corn flour add the crunch and makes the cookies taste different from the short bread cookies. The almond flakes in between makes it more yummier. Then some chocolate drizzled on it will sure tempt any kid to have a bit.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#37.  Lets move the yummy cookies recipe..
