Candied fruit Cookies | Tutti Frutti Cookies | Ice box cookies | Egg less Cookies

Today's recipe is Tutti frutti (Candied fruit) Cookies- Ice box cookies. I was planning to bake these Tutti Frutti cookies from the day I got tutti frutti from the nearby Indian store. But was putting it off for different reasons. Today when I woke up in the morning I realized it is the day before Christmas and my daughter wanted cookies for Santa. So immediately I got into action and baked these cookies. They tasted absolutely delicious and with the tutti frutti they looked absolutely gorgeous. My kids loved these cookies. I hope Santa will like it too. :)

Recipe adapted from: Spice Club

What are the ingredients needed?

Butter, 1/2 cup
Icing sugar, 1/2 cup
Vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon
Almond extract, 1/4 teaspoon (optional)
All purpose flour, 1 1/4 cup
Salt, 1/4 teaspoon
Tutti frutti (candied fruit) , about 1/2 cup
Milk, 2 Tablespoon

How it is made?
  1. Cream butter and icing sugar together.
  2. Then add vanilla extract and almond extract and mix well.
  3. Then add salt and gradually add all purpose flour and keep mixing.
  4. Then add milk and mix well.
  5. Finally add candied fruits (tutti frutti) and mix well  till they are fully incorporated.
  6. The dough will be sticky. Using the wax paper roll the dough in the shape of a log.
  7. Place the log in the refrigerator for about 1 hour or in the freezer for about 1/2 an hour.
  8. Pre-heat the oven to 350F. Prepare the cookie sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
  9. Then take out the log and slice it for about 1/2" thickness and arrange them in the cookie sheet.

  11. Transfer to wire rack and let it cool completely.
  12. Then store it in air tight container.

  • Adding almond extract is optional.
  • I love tutti frutti so I have added about 1/2 cup of it. You can reduce it if you prefer and add about 1/3 cup of it. 
  • The baking time varies with the thickness of the cookie slices.
