As the name goes it truely melted in my mouth and an instant hit.Thanks Nags for the recipe.
We had a get together last weekend and I actually thought of making a Carrot Cake but this recipe was a long pending in my To Try list and I had a biscuit maker which was just dodging me for long and I would finally settle with the cutters.But it behaved well this time and the shapes and taste went hand in hand.We were supposed to leave out of town by 5.30am and I started to bake at 2pm the previous day which went on till 9pm as my dear H warned me that it should be sufficient for 60 plus heads or otherwise asked me to forget.But it was worth the time as every one liked it at teatime on a misty evening.The original recipe is from here

Butter-125 gms at room temperature
Icing sugar-60 gms
Maida-100 gms
Cornflour-25 gms
Cocoa powder-20 gms

Beat butter and sugar on low speed
Sift flour,cornflour and cocoa
Add flour little at a time to the butter and mix
Make small balls and press lightly
Arrange in tray with space in between
Bake for 30 min at 180 C
I used a biscuit maker with different dyes for the shapes

This goes to Srilekha's EFM-Cookies Series and Poornima's For The Love Of Chocolate Events
