Tutti-frutti Cookies

Pin It

Tutti-frutti Cookies ... Cookies made with butter, sugar, egg, all-purpose flour with addition of candied fruits. Just make a log, chill & coat with coconut. These cookies are very light & tender. Enjoy these colorful & tasty cookies!

Tutti-frutti Cookies

Ingredients :
  • 125 gm.  butter, softened
  • 100 gm.  sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 200 gm.  flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 75 gm.  candied fruits, diced
  • 40 gm.  desiccated coconut
  • 1 egg white
Method :
  • In a bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt. Keep aside.
  • In another bowl,  beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. 
  • Add the egg & vanilla and beat again.
  • Stir in flour mixture, mix until dough forms.
  • Stir in candied fruits.
  • Halve the dough. On a lightly floured surface, form each half into a log. 
  • Chill logs, wrapped in wax paper or cling film, 1 hour or until firm.
  • Preheat oven to 175 ° C. Line the baking sheet with baking paper. 
  • Spread coconut on a board or plate, brush the dough logs with egg white and coat with the coconut.  
  • Again chill about 10 minutes.
  • Cut logs into 1/4 inch thick slices with a knife and place about 1 inch apart on baking sheet. 

  • Bake cookies in middle of oven until golden, about 12 - 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. 
  • Keep in an airtight container. 
Note : 
  • This is a very soft dough, don't be tempted to add extra flour. Once the dough is chilled, it is very easy to handle. 
  • I tinted the coconut to add more color to these cookies. To tint coconut, add a few drops of liquid food coloring to coconut in a jar or plastic bag. Shake until evenly tinted. Spread the colored coconut on paper towels to dry.
  • They are best served the day they are made, but can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
