A Popular Indian Sweet Crispy Snack - Sweet Baked Cookies  

Sakarpara is very popular snack in Indian specially in Gujarat and Maharastra. Normally It is prepared in festivals like Diwali, Holi etc. Mostly people fry the diamond pieces of sweet dough to make sakarpara. But to make it more exciting for my little one I gave them heart shape and for my hubby who prefers everything law fat so instead of frying I baked them in oven. It was a hit trick and they finished them all in next hour..check out the recipe for how to make heart shape baked Sakarpara below.
