Ingredients:

1 cup all purpose flour ( I took around 100 gms , you can make 18-20 medium size cookies)
1/2 cup salted butter cubes ( butter with 0.1% salt in it)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
10-12 tsp of mixed dry fruits ( you can mix any dry fruits of your choice. I used cashews, pecan, tutti frutti, raisins and cranberries)
2 tsp of cold milk ( if required)



How To Prepare?
  • Grind the sugar into a fine powder.
  • Add baking powder to the flour. Mix well and keep it aside.
  • In large mixing bowl, mix butter and powdered sugar nicely.


  • Add the flour little by little to the sugar butter mixture and prepare a soft dough.If you feel the mixture is very dry add 2 tsp of cold milk while preparing the dough.


  • Chop all the dry fruits and keep it ready.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degree C.
  • Now pinch out small portions of dough and make balls out of it.
  • Using a wooden block or bottom of the tumbler press the balls gently to form a small discs.

    .
  • Spread dry fruits and nut on top of each disc. Press gently using a fork or spoon on top so that nuts set well.
  • Bake the disks at 180 degree C in preheated oven for about 20 -25 mins. It should turn golden brown color.
  • To be on the safer side, check after 15 mins and if its not done keep it for 5-10 mins more. (Look at the below pic , when I checked after 15 mins ,only bottom part was light brown in color)
