Tutti - Frutti cookies (Eggless)

Ever since I started blogging, I have been experimenting a lot of baking at home. My recent try was this Tutti Frutti Christmas Special Cookies. Yes! This is specially baked during Christmas time in Goa and I have tasted it in Goa during the festive mood and that was before my marriage. Since I love to cook and bake yummy delicious cookies for my DH and my little boy, I tried it last month and it came out super good , crisp and melts in mouth. 

Recipe Source : Sharmi's Passion

Ingredients 

Maida/ All prpose flour - 1 cup

Powdered Sugar - 1/2 cup

Tutti Frutti - 1/4 cup

Milk - 1 or 2  tbsp 

Unsalted Butter - 6 tbsp (room Temperature)


Method

1. Powder the sugar and bring the butter to room temperature.

2. In a mixing bowl, add powdered sugar and butter. Cream this to light and fluffy. 

3. Add maida, tutti frutti and mix well.

4. Add milk to form a soft sticky dough. Lay a butter paper and roll the dough and form a log. Dust some flour if needed.

5. Wrap it with a butter paper and freeze it in a freezer for 40 mins.

6. Meanwhile, preheat the oven at 180C for 10 mins.

7. Remove the dough logs from the freezer and slice them into thick slices appx 1/2 an inch.



8. Line the baking tray or a cake mold with butter paper and place these cookies carefully on a baking tray leaving some space in between each cookie. The cookies doesn't spread, still its better to follow this step.

9. Bake this for 15- 20 mins or till you notice the edges turning into light golden brown in color. This indicates that the cookies are done. Transfer carefully in a rack and allow it to cool completely. Transfer it into an air tight container and enjoy it during tea time or any time when you feel like munching ;)

Note:

  •  Don't use a knife with wavy impressions. Always use a smooth finish knife or a plain sharp knife with no impressions to cut the cookie dough log. This results in getting a smooth layer on a cookie.

  • Check the cookies in regular 10 mins intervals since they turn to burn easily. 

  • You can also use a cookie cutter to cut the cookies into any shape as desired.

  • The cookies turn out crisp when its cooled completely.
