Now what does one say about not posting for such a long time? For sure, it is not that I have become lazy or lost interest in my blog. I am sure being busy on all fronts in life should qualify as enough reason for not blogging. But the blog is not too far from my thoughts. It eats at me every morning when I realise one more day has passed without anything new on here.
This is now a far cry from my earlier post on being addicted. So now I have decided that If I can't do it then I can't do it. No pressure, right? Hopefully I should be able to accelerate the cooking, photo taking and the posting to keep the momentum going.
Let me quickly get to the point now.
Doesn't the name Tutti Frutti Cookies make you feel a kid again? Some things are always associated with childhood and I think the word tutti frutti features right on top of that list. I loved tutti frutti ice cream as a kid. How many of you remember that silly ball ice cream? I think Kwality made that. It was only ordinary vanilla ( not that vanilla can ever be ordinary) But we would simply die to eat that. And then carefully wash it out and use the plastic to play for a bit. I cannot still understand my fascination for that but well... thats how childhood is, I guess.
Anyway, here is the quick and easy recipe.
180 grams Butter
1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar
3 cups All purpose flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
200 grams tutti frutti (candied peel)
Soften the butter and add the brown sugar. Mix well till light and creamy.
Add the egg and vanilla essence and mix well again.
Sift the dry ingredients. Add to the butter sugar mixture.
Add the tutti frutti. Roll into logs of 2 inch diameter.
Put it into the refrigerator for about 4 hours.
Cut into thin slices and bake at 170 deg C for about 8 minutes or till done.
Cool and enjoy.
