  7. Take out the cookies from Microwave. Cookies will be yellowish from upside and slightly brown from the bottom.
  8. Please remember these cookies will be too soft to touch, so at this moment you could put sliced almond or pistachio over the cookie and slightly press them into it.
  9. Now put the cookies aside in the same plate to cool down. Once the cookies cool down they will become perfect to be picked and eaten. Be patient ;)
  10. Yayy... Cookies are ready to be relished !!
