Cherry Biscuits/Cookies(Eggless)

Hitting two birds with a stone..?Yup,that’s exactly what I did today.I’ve been wanting to make something very badly since so many days,but kept postponing it.But when I saw this month’s AFAM was Cherry…I just couldn’t stop myself from making it.My joy knew no bounds when I saw the Update that candied-sugar syrup cherries were also allowed..;-).I couldn’t be more happy!!

The first time I came across this was during our last supermarket trip.Nilgiris does have a great array of baked stuff.I came across this cute little packet with white biscuits with a cherry dot in the middle.I was about to pop it inside our basket and then…guess what?Hubby asked me why I am buying stuff which I can easily make at home myself!!OMG…I totally forgot about the packet and kept smiling to myself.I got an indirect compliment from hubby and that is definitely something to cheer about.I bought a packet of cherry instead.Planned to make it at the next available opportunity.But as usual,it got postponed and then I totally forgot about it.

Today morning when I saw the AFAM announcement,I knew this was the time.Took the plunge and made it…it came out delicious.I followed this recipe and placed a cherry on top.Even though it tasted great,this is not how I wanted the results to be like exactly.I wanted petite biscuits which we could pop in the mouth at one go.But my biscuits started expanding…and became cookies!!So if anyone can give me tips on ‘how to make cherry cookies/biscuits..?Please advice’.
