Tutti frutti cookies are delicious eggless cookies that melt in the mouth. Tutti frutti is a British term for a confection containing small pieces of candied mix fruits. You can find tutti frutti in an Indian store as well as any superstore's dry fruits and nuts section. I bought the mixed candied fruits from a nearby superstore.

I am thankful to my friend Sonal for sharing the recipe of tutti frutti cookies. Last year Sonal visited us for the holidays and brought homemade, eggless tutti frutti cookies which everyone loved. Sonal is just perfect in baking; her baking skills are outstanding. Believe me or not but Sonal makes cakes which one cannot find even in big bakeries. So here we are with Sonal’s Tutti frutti cookies recipe. I have substituted a couple of ingredients which I will explain in the recipe. These cookies are also know as Karachi biscuits. Please try these cookies and do share your comments. Happy baking, Shuchi

Some Tips/ Suggestions:

  1. I did not get tutti frutti in Indian store so I got the candied fruits from American store.
  2. I did not get rose or pineapple essense in any of the stores in my city so I used Rose water instead.
  3. You can also use ghee (clarified butter). Increase the amount of butter if you want super soft cookies.
  4. These cookies are very easy to make, make them with your children. It can be a fun project for weekend.
  5. You can add some other nuts as per taste.
