Chocolate Drizzled Shortbread Cookies



Today's recipe for Bake-A-Thon is a simple yet crunchy short bread cookies drizzled with chocolate.I tried this recipe for April Mega Marathon,but due bad weather the pictures were dull,couldn't share it.
Here I drizzled the cookies with semi chocolate and sprinkled it with colorful sprinkles.In original recipe half of the cookie is dipped in the melted chocolate also the dough is rolled and cut with a cookie cutter.Since I don't have a nice cookie cutter I made the dough to a log and slice it with knife.As my kiddo wanted the chocolate to be drizzled and topped with some colorful sprinkles.Lets move on to the recipe....
