Yum
Hi dear friends, all are in the Christmas rush to shopping, baking cakes and cookies, inviting relatives and friends!!! So happy moments... From my side of contribution I prepared simple but delicious melting cookies... This is my first Christmas on my blog, so more happy to be in the blogging world... I can see more varieties of Cakes, cookies with very innovative ideas...

Today am being here to post my Melting cookies...  It is my most favorite cookies which is so melting in mouth but due to health fitness I avoid these cookies from my diet... I never tried this cookies before and I have seen the yummy cookies in one of the place and it was prepared with oil instead of butter.... So I just tried the cookies for the Christmas and it was come out really very well and mouthwatering cookies...
Am sure you will like this and I used Jam for topping and its too so chew able.. Do you taste Sunfeast Jam  cookies which is filled in the center, I got that taste here...

Little About Melting Cookies
The cookies is called with many names like Benne biscuit, Butter Biscuit, Nankhatai... The biscuit is very common in India but more popular in Karnataka... In our place we called it as Sooseberry I don't know how the name was come...I couldn't find the name cause in Google too..  But in my place they called in the name and very famous in Bakeries...


Benefits
Ha ha... Its full of calories and more fat if we use butter...
So here what the benefits in the cookies.........Just we can taste the every bite of the cookies.
But it is bit guilt free (low fat) cookies because of I used vegetable oil instead of butter.
