Eggless Tutti Frutti Cookies / Candied Fruit Cookies - Christmas Cookies Recipe!

Christmas is around the corner. This year also, I wanted to share few Christmas Bakes and Next to Challah Bread here come Eggless Tutti Frutti Cookies. Christmas/Winter is the right time for baking to enjoy holiday & festive occasions. And, also Winter Baking helps keep your house warm by turning on the oven ;) So I love to bake something alternate days or twice a week. I have bookmarked this cookies from Harichandana's Blog. This is one simple and very easy to make cookies that makes a perfect Edible gifts for your friends  & family. This so rich, flavorful butter cookies with the tutti frutti crunch, it just melt in mouth and it tastes similar to the Iyengar Bakery Vennai biscuits (white colour cubed biscuits). I am a big fan of those cute white vennai biscuits and badly miss it. And now happy that i could bake it at home so easily.
Here I added tutti frutti but you can very well replace it with any candied fruits/ dry fruits or chopped nuts.

Recipe Adapted from Here  Preparation Time: 15 mins 
Freezing Time : 40 minutes Baking time: 15 mins  
Makes about 2 dozen cookies
  1. All Purpose Flour   1 cup
  2. Powdered Sugar    1/2 cup

  4. Unsalted Butter, softened    6 tbsp
  5. Vanilla Extract     1/4 tsp
  6. Tutti Frutti      4-5 tbsp

  • In a mixing bowl, add softened butter and powdered sugar or icing sugar and beat until it turns light and fluffy, then add vanilla and stir well.
  • To it add flour, pinch of salt combine well and using milk knead it to a smooth and soft dough.
  • The dough should be slightly sticky but firm enough to hold its shape.
  • Now shape it a log and wrap it with a cling/plastic wrap and freeze it for 40 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 320 F.
  • After that unwrap the dough, cut into 5 mm thick slices.
  • And arrange the slices in a parchment lined cookie sheet, leaving some space between slices.
