  • In a bowl, take all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, custard powder, and tutti-frutti. Mix the ingredients properly.
  • In another bowl take butter, essence, milk, and sugar. Mix it well and you will get a creamy mixture.
  • Start adding dry ingredients with wet ingredients. Using your hands just combine all the ingredients and make a dough. Don’t over knead it.
  • Place a plastic wrap on your working counter and place the dough on it.
  • Shape the dough into a log shape.
  • Wrap it well and keep it in refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile preheat the oven at 180 °C. Now take out the dough ad cut it into ¼ inch thick slices.
  • Place a parchment paper on the baking tray and place each slice on it by leaving some space in between as cookies will expand when bake.
  • Bake these cookies in a preheated oven for 12-15 minutes.
