Eggless Tutti Fruity Cookies

A big thanks to Sailu for sharing her wonderful eggless recipe of the tuity fruity cookies. I tried the cookies . Though mine were not as white as her's, it sure did come out very well. The slight yellow color might be because I used a yellow colored custard powder-vanilla flavor. She had used vanilla extract, but I used cardamom extract. I had to use drops of cold water in the end because the dough was little dry and I could not make balls. The recipe below is based on Sailu's Eggless Tutti-Frutti Cookies.


2 cups Maida
1 cup Canola oil (refined oil)
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup custard powder (I used vanilla flavor)
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons Cardamom Extract
Tutti fruity for garnish


Mix together maida, baking powder, baking soda and custard powder and in a bowl and dry whisk them really well.

Blend the sugar and oil till smooth. Add the flour to the sugar-oil mixture. Add Cardamom extract and mix well to form a dough. If the dough doesn’t become stiff enough to roll out into balls, add a few tbsps of cold milk or water and chill for a few minutes.

Make small balls out the dough. Garnish with tutti fruity, by slightly pressing into the dough. Place on a greased tray and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 10 -12 mts or till done. Once baked, the cookie will feel soft on touch but once cool it will harden. If you over bake beyond the mentioned time limit, you will have a very crunchy cookie.

Cool on a wire rack and store in airtight container.

For how long the oven should be preheated before baking the cookies?
