Peach Cookies

By Shazia @diary_of_a_home
When it comes to baking, cakes are my favorite. I do bake cookies but seldomly. One of my best-loved cookies that I want to make again and again are peach cookies.
I think baking is really a work of art, just whip up some ingredients into a blob, pop into the oven and you have created a master piece. I like these cookies for two simple reasons, firstly they look very pretty just like real peaches and secondly they are super delicious.
The recipe is fairly easy to follow, you don't have to be a skilled baker to make them. See! Even I could make them and I am not artistic at all. Ask my children and they will tell you how much I struggle to make the food I have prepared to stand out on the table.
As far as the filling is concerned there are many options, you can use nutella, pastry cream or peach jam. I like to use peach jam just to stick to the theme. When applying color there are different techniques but I have found that the color is easier to apply with a pastry brush.
These look quite impressive just like Gulab Jamun, when served at tea parties or HighTea, you can even pack them as occasional sweet treats in your kids lunch boxes. So what are you waiting for, come with me into the kitchen and let's give it a shot.
