Match stick Cookie | Eggless Match Sick Shaped Cookie

Eggless Match stick shaped Cookies

I just Love doing mega marathon and as this time it was baking I was not sure if I can pull it through as I had lot of work to catch up. Still I planned to write down all the cookies and cakes am going to make for the marathon before starting the baking process. The first recipe I made for the marathon was this match stick cookie. Am in love with decorative and different shaped cookies now as I made so many cookie different ones. These cookies are so attractive and they where just imitating a match stick and people around me where surprised to see such a cookie . After sharing all my marathon bakes to my friends they even started telling me start a bakery he he ..They are so nice that's loads of a compliment but I feel I have lot to learn here. These match stick cookies where very delicious to taste with a dip of a chocolate, a perfect finger food for any one. To give it a match look I presented it in a box ;) Hope you try and enjoy this recipe as we did.
