    Tutti Frutti Cookies Eggless

    I have been eating tutti frutti cookies since I was a child. During those days, the fun was in picking tutti frutti from the cookies and saving it for the end. This love for tutti frutti never ended and when I started baking cookies, I made the famous Karachi fruit biscuit filled with tutti frutti.

    Amit, my better half, is too adventures. He is crazy about long road trips. Because of him, we have travelled Munnar, Kanya Kumari, Punjab, Gurgaon, and a lot other places all via road. He seems to be infected with some virus and now dreaming of a road trip to Thailand. I am completely out of this. 4000+ km one side, only a crazy person can think of it. Hope he finds some partner for his road trip.

    By making these long trips, I have learnt a few things. One of them is to always carry some homemade snacks with you with longer shelf life. One, it keeps you available with those energy punches during long spells and second they become your great companions during those long empty patches where you find almost nothing on the road sides. I have learnt this hard way and now I ensure to carry some enough cookies and cakes during those endless road trips.

    Powdered Sugar 70 gm
    Baking Powder ½ tsp

    Tutti Frutti Cookies Flour and butter

    Add tutti frutti and mix it with flour.

    Tutti frutti with flour

    If required add 1 tbs of cold milk at a time and prepare a dough. Don’t over knead it as it can result in soft and chewy cookies. For this particular measurement I have use 2 tbs of milk.

    Tutti Frutti Dough

    Shape the dough into a log and cover it with cling wrap. Let it rest in refrigerator for about 30 minutes. This will help butter to solidify and make easy for you to handle the dough. Also if you let the dough rest in refrigerator, it will avoid the cookies to expand immediately and helps to intact the shape of cookies.

    Tutti Frutti Cookies Dough

    Keep the oven for preheating at 160 °C. Meanwhile take the dough out from refrigerator and slice it into ½ inch in thickness. All the cookies should be of same thickness and size. It helps in even baking.

    Line a baking tray with parchment paper or you can simply grease it with butter. Arrange all the sliced cookies on the tray by leaving some space in between. Bake these cookies in a preheated oven at 160 °C for 15 minutes or until the edges turn golden. Temperature and time can vary from oven to oven.

    Recipe Notes
    • Only use cold butter if you want your cookies to be crunchy.
    • Do not over knead the dough.
    • Add milk (1 tablespoon at a time) only if required.
    • After kneading, resting the dough in refrigerator is very important. It avoids the spreading of cookies while baking.
    • You can add chopped nuts instead of tutti frutti. Choice of nuts is completely yours.
    • After baking, let the cookies cool completely and then store in an airtight container.
    • In case you don’t have vanilla essence, you can use pineapple essence or rose essence as well.
