    Candied fruit cookies are popularly known as tutti frutti cookies in India. These cookies are my childhood love. During those days, the fun was in picking tutti frutti from the cookies and saving it for the end.

    This love for candied cookies never ended actually and here I am with the most popular tutti frutti cookies recipe.

    Amit, my better half, is too adventures. He is crazy about long road trips. His punch line

    I just want to go on a long drive to somewhere new Click To Tweet

    Whether I like it or not but we have covered the length and breadth of India in our car. He continues to fancy about more trip and now planning to drive down to Bangkok.  Hope he finds some partner for his road trip because I am certainly not in for this craziness.

    By making these long trips, I have learned a few things. One of them is to always carry some homemade snacks that have a longer shelf life. You certainly do not know what’s comes up during your travel.

    A healthy substitute is always better than eating anything on highways Click To Tweet

    I prefer carrying cookies and cakes during those endless road trips.

    Eggless Tutti Frutti Cookies

    Last month we traveled to Gurgaon via road to celebrate Diwali with family. My in-laws and my parents do not eat sweet cookies, because of health reason. Hence made Savory Cumin Cookies for them.

    For in between snacking during the road trip, I, along with these tutti frutti cookies, made

    Choco chip cookies

    Energy Balls

    Vegan Banana bread

    As usual, these tutti frutti cookies are eggless.

    Let’s dive-in the recipe

    In a bowl take All-purpose flour, Sugar and Baking powder. Mix all the dry ingredients. Add butter to it and using the fingertips, mix the butter with dry ingredients.

    Tip: Use only cold butter if you want your cookies to be crispy.

    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 recipe, I have used 2 tbs of milk.

    Tip: Always use measuring tools and use “spooned and leveled” method to measure accurately.

    Tutti Frutti Dough

    Shape the dough into a log and cover it with cling wrap. Let it rest in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. This will help butter to solidify and make easy for you to handle the dough.

    Tip: Let the dough rest in the 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 the 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.

    Tutti Frutti Cookies Before Baking

    Once baked, take the tray out and place all the baked cookies on a wired rack.

    Tutti Frutti Cookies after Baking

    Let the cookies cool completely and then store them in an airtight container.

    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.

    1. Hi Sonia….love your recipes. Just One question. A couple of days back, I had tried out these cookies. Although they tasted good, the cookies spread quite a bit while baking. I used room temperature butter…..can that be the reason why they spread?
      And when they spread, I felt they weren’t cooked enough….so I kept baking. Finally, they became very hard. The Second batch came out well though. I m sure I used the right amount of butter. Seeking your advice on this one….thanks!

      • Hello Kavita,
        If you used butter at room temperature, keep the dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to keep the shape intact. Cookies would stay soggy when they get baked and will become crisp as they cool down, you need to give them time. Your cookies became hard because of over baking.
        Regards
        Sonia
