how to make recipe
making eggless tutti frutti cookies dough:
  1. firstly take 1/2 cup sugar in a dry grinder.

  8. now add 1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla essence. you can also use 1/2 tsp cardamom powder or 1/4 tsp nutmeg powder, if you do not have vanilla extract. also rose essence or extract can be added. in fact you can add any fruit extract or essence.
  9. fold the vanilla extract with the creamed mixture.
  10. next directly sift 2 cups whole wheat flour directly in the bowl containing the creamed butter. you can also sift the flour in a plate and then add. instead of whole wheat flour, you can also use all purpose flour or maida or half-half of both the flours.
  11. now add 3 to 4 tbsp milk. i added 4 tbsp. depending on quality of flour you may need to add more or less milk. the milk helps in binding and to get the mixture together in a dough.
  12. begin to gently mix with your hands and gather the whole mixture in a dough. do not knead.
  13. the mixture should be able to come together and hold easily. add 1 or 2 tbsp more of the milk if the dough is not able to come together in a dough.
rolling tutti frutti cookies:

  2. sprinkle 4 to 5 tbsp tutti frutti evenly on the rolled cookie dough.
  3. gently press the tutti frutti so that they get embedded in the dough.
  4. with a biscuit cutter, cut the cookie slices.

making eggless tutti frutti cookies:
  1. bake the cookies in the preheated oven at 180 degrees C/356 degrees fahrenheit for 15-20 mins till the tops become light golden. since oven temperatures vary, it may takes less or more time. so do keep a check. for convection ovens use the preheating and baking temperature of 160 degrees celsius/320 degrees fahrenheit.

  2. bake till the tutti frutti cookies are a light or pale golden. do not over bake them as then they will become very hard.

  3. the base should also be light golden to golden. i baked in two batches as i have a small oven. if you have a big oven, you can bake these tutti frutti cookies in one go.

  4. after a minute, place the tutti frutti cookies on a wired rack. let them cool at room temperature. once cooled, store them in an air-tight box or jars.
