MILLIONAIRE'S SHORTBREAD


You need not be a millionaire to make /eat a Millionaire's Shortbread :) It is a very simple recipe but a very delicious one! This evilish shortbread's were introduced to me during my 'hostel days'! I'm so sure anyone following my posts till now would realise how important 'hostel' was in my life. Those were the days! I mean... so much mischief.. which includes sneaking into each other's rooms in the night, mid night feasts, scaring others ( that was my fav past time!!! ) and the icing of it all were these kinda 'tucks' that we all used to load our bags with, every time we returned from our homes.


Shortbreads basking in the early morning sun ;D
