This is one of the cutest cookies I have ever baked.My kids liked it so much that I had to bake many batches.My daughter complimented me that it tasted just like the Bangalorean famous cookies badamika/chocomika (Anand sweets) and she suggested me to add cocoa powder to give the chocomika touch and gave me the idea of adding flavour and I followed it.
Coming back to the Icing part I'm still a beginner and I baked these goodies several times on demand and for practicing icing.First I tried to ice with readymade icing gun which was a real mess job,It broke in the middle and I was very disappointed...Then I was left without any option and I had to switch to normal icing using the disposable icing bag and I enjoyed icing to the core with imperfect impressions ofcourse which was improving with my each try and it was looking cute finally.The cookies gets baked very fast so keep an eye while baking and adjust the temperature accordingly.I baked these cookies using both store bought and home made butter...This is 'no one can eat just one' cookies.
