Fruit and Nut Cookies

I love the Karachi biscuits that is very famous in Hyderabad and wanted to try a similar cookie, so here we go for the delicious fruit and nut cookies recipe.

  • 1 cup Maida/ All purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Butter (at room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Rose water
  • 1/4 tsp Cardamom powder
  • 1/4 cup Tutti frutti
  • 1/4 cup Cashew finely chopped

1. Mix the Maida, butter, sugar, rose water and cardamom powder to form a dough.
2. Divide the dough into two portions.
3. Flatten one portion of the dough into a 1/4" thick square on a parchment paper/ wax paper and spread half the tutti fruiti and half the cashews on the dough as shown below
4. Spread the remaining portion of the dough on top and add the remaining tutti fruiti and cashews on top.

5. Cover this with another wax paper or parchment paper and freeze it for 10 min.
6. In the meantime preheat the oven to 350F or 180C.
7. Remove the dough from the freezer and slice them into squares and bake them for 10 min or till the bottom of the cookies are golden brown.
8. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and cool them and then store in an airtight container.
