For today I thought I will make the Eggless Chocolate Shortbread that I had bookmarked long back. It was interesting to read about what Shortbread is. I am on a really short time on this recipe, will share the recipe and be off!
I made this early hours and you can imagine how hungry that left me! I wanted to do the glaze but decided to leave it just like that. Though I planned for a post for the last day of chocolate Mela, looks like I will not be able to do it. So enjoy these four delicious treats anyway.
