    I had never heard of Milk Cookies but evidently they are very popular in India.  I found this recipe on Times of India.  They are very simple cookies, remeniscent of our butter cookies.  My grand niece graduated high school this year and I made these up to take to her celebration.

    I was going to make stars and decorate them with blue and gold as those are her school colors but when I pulled down my baking supplies I found tons of colors but no blue.  So I switched to flowers and butterflies instead so I could use what I had on hand.
