Eggless Chic-pea Stained Glass Cookies

I love to try new variations in cookies. Me and my 5 year old enjoy having homemade cookies. I saw this type of cookies in a very well-known facebook group and hence wanted to give it a try. But I didn’t have rock candies used in this cookies to give stained glass effect. But the beautiful lady had mentioned  that we can also use  hard candies for getting this effect. I was very excited and tried my batch yesterday and they came out perfect.

So here’s the recipe for my Chicpea flour Stained Glass Cookies.
