Gift wrapped Christmas cookies

These past few days, I baked and baked and baked for Christmas and New Year. Made batch after batch of cookies and cakes for family and friends.

Day 1 – Rich fruit cakes
Day 2 – Chocolate Brownies
Day 3 – Chocolate Chip and Almond Cookies
Day 4 – Tutti-frutti Cookies & Oats and Cocoa Cookies (eggless)
Day 5 – Cornflakes Cookies (eggless)
Day 6 – Russian Tea Cakes/Snowballs (eggless)
Day 7 – Gift wrapping all of them:)

Today, I am sharing three types of cookie recipes and sending them off to Susan of Foodblogga who is hosting Eat Christmas Cookies Event.

Eggless Tutti-Frutti Cookies
Eggless tutti frutti cookies

Custard powder and tutti frutti are the main ingredients that add oomph and flavor to this basic cookie recipe. With a colorful topping, these delicious goodies are an absolute favorite at our home with a wonderful mouthfeel.

Tutti frutti cookie dough before baking

Eggless Tutti-Frutti Cookies Recipe

Preparation: 10-12 mts, Baking: 12 mts

Makes approx 28-30 cookies

.

Ingredients:

2 cups all purpose flour (maida)

1 cup vegetable oil

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup custard pwd

3/4 tsp baking pwd

big pinch of baking soda

1 tsp vanilla essence

tutti frutti for garnish

1 Sieve maida, baking pwd, baking soda and custard pwd.
2 Blend the sugar and oil till smooth. Add the sieved ingredients to the sugar-oil mixture. Add vanilla essence 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.
3 Pinch bits of dough and shape into balls and slightly flatten. Or you could alternately pipe the dough into small balls. Garnish with tutti frutti, by slightly pressing into the dough. Place on a greased tray and bake at 180 C 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.
4 Cool on a wire rack and store in airtight container.

Eggless Cornflakes Cookies
Eggless Cornflakes Cookies

This recipe I have adapted from a cooking magazine and its the first time that I am making it as a trial batch. The cookie has a sweet crunchy bite of cornflakes and granulated sugar and it tastes better with age.

Dough shaped into cookie

Eggless Cornflakes Cookies Recipe

Preparation: 15 mts, Baking : 22-25 mts

Makes approx 18 cookies

.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup crushed cornflakes

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour (maida)

1/2 cup butter, melted

3/4 tsp baking pwd

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 Blend the sugar and butter till smooth. Add maida, baking pwd, vanilla essence and crushed cornflakes 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 milk and chill for a few minutes.
2 Be careful when shaping out the dough into small balls, as it does take effort to hold it together to form small balls and slightly flatten them. IF the dough is crumbly, its alright. Take care and shape into slightly flattened balls. Place on a greased tray and bake at 175 C for about 25 mts or till golden brown.
3 Cool on a wire rack and store in airtight container.

Eggless Oats-Cocoa Cookies
Eggless Oats Chocolate Cookies

This recipe which calls for oats and cocoa, crumble quickly and have a soft and melt in the mouth feel with a intense chocolate flavor and the oats compliments the chocolate with a bit of crumbly crunch. But after a day of sitting the flavors of the cookie really came together well. Those who love a strong chocolate flavor will love these not-so-good looking, cracky cookies. Don’t go by the looks, its downright delicious!:)

Oats cocoa cookie dough before baking

Eggless Oats-Cocoa Cookies Recipe

Preparation: 10 mts, Baking : 10-12 mts

Makes approx 20 cookies

.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup oats (I use Quakers)

1/2 cup vegetable oil + 1 tbsp oil

1/2 cup all-purpose flour (maida)

1 cup powdered sugar

1 1/2 tbsps unsweetened cocoa pwd (adjust according to your taste)

3/4 tsp baking pwd

big pinch of baking soda

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 Sieve maida, baking pwd, baking soda and cocoa pwd.
2 Blend the sugar and oil till smooth. Add the sieved ingredients to the sugar-oil mixture. Add vanilla essence and oats and mix well to form a very soft dough. If the dough doesn’t become stiff enough to roll out into balls, add a few tbsps of milk and chill for a few minutes. Be careful when shaping out the dough into small balls, as it does take effort to hold it together to form small balls and slightly flatten them.
3 Place on a greased tray and bake at 180 C for about 10-12 mts or till done.
4 Cool on a wire rack and store in airtight container.

    Hi Sailu..first time commenting here..followed this link through foodblogga..wow..the cookies and their packaging is marvellous..I tried your oats cookies today, we all know their nutritional value n benefits to health, but it appealed to me as my daughter who has been allergic to milk n milk products can easily have these high fibre cookies minus the butter! So special thanks to you for posting and sharing these! Happy Sankranti to you too!

    Hi! Sailu, I’m big fan of ur cooking. Can u tell me can we use butter instead of parchment paper or as cookie sheet. Secondly from where should i get these Tutti-Frutti. I searched for it in many places but i dont get these. Actually what are these???

    Plz positively reply to me question cause i’m making ur fruit cake on my marraige aniversary.

    By the way ur ROCKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you, Mona. You can use butter paper as cookie sheet. Tutti-frutti is available in any good food /departmental stores in India. If you don’t have tutti-frutti to prepare the fruit cake, omit it and carry on with the rest of the ingredients.

    All the best and happy wedding anniversary (in advance).-:)

  • Mona

    Hi! Sailu, Thanks for your reply. I got tutti-frutti. Can u tell me one thing that if i make fruit cake in microwave oven for such long time, it wont get harden?

    Waiting for ur reply……..

    Thanks again. Bye!!!!!!!

    I have never tried baking in an Microwave Oven, Mona.

  • Usha

    Great cookie recipies !
    Looking for you Russian teacake/ snowballs recipie.
    Please send the link.

    Thanks alot in advance:)

  • Latha

    Hi Sailu,

    I just finished making a batch of the wonderful tutti-frutti cookies (with pistas instead!). Very easy to make and crisp. Only doubt i have is the dough was not stiff (not sticky) but a bit more on the softer side. I kept in fridge while the oven was heating up. Is this normal? The cookies were flat.. may be i flattened it a bit too much. But please tell me how the consistency of dough should be.

    Thanks!

  • http://None Sobhana

    Hi Sailu,
    I have been following your website for quite sometime now. Myself & mom-in-law are great fans of baking and keep trying new varieties all the time…we initially failed to make the Indian bakery style cookies at home and thanks to your tutti-fruity cookie recipe we successfully accomplished that.
    But I wanted to know, where do you get tutti-fruity in the US? Please suggest.

    Thanks
    Sobhana

    Thank you for visiting my blog and feedback on the recipe, Shobana. I’m not sure where its available in US since I live in India.

  • geeta

    the custard powder I have is yellow from weikfield. which custard powder did you use? my cookies looked yellow and were hard and did not look like the powdery ones you have shown in the picture

  • vani

    looking forward for ur reply

    Vani, I don’t bake in microwave though you can bake in a microwave. I am not sure of the time of baking for these cookies. You could try a small trial batch and bake for 3-4 mts maybe and test if they come out well.

  • Sridevi

    Hi Sailu

    hey sailu
    do u have khaju katli recipe in ur blog??? am not able to find it….let me know if u have…

  • Siri

    Dear Sailu,
    I tried your tutty fruity eggless cookies at home. My cookies got browned at the bottom and little bit uncooked at the top. What could have gone wrong ? Pls let me know I have been longing to make cookies at home. Thanks in advance.

    Probably the baking pan is too close to oven bottom or cookies are very thick. Spread out the cookie dough with slightly damp fingers on an aluminium cookie sheet and place the sheet to top position of the oven.

  • Rathnam

    Hi Sailu garu,

    I made tutti-fruti cookies yesterday, usually I make these using almond powder, custard powder is new for me. They turned out great. I made two changes for this recipe, instead of using all purpose flour and vegetable oil, I used canola oil and 100% white whole wheat flour. They don’t look like yours(colour), but tastes great. Thanks for recipe.

    Rathnam

  • Deepti

    Dear Sailu,

    I use the morphy richard oven and I have pre-heated the oven and kept it in bake mode at the mentioned temp. I see that the bottom of the cookie gets burnt completely :( Do I have to take any other precautions? Please help.

    Place cookies on a baking metal sheet that has been lined with foil and place it in the center of the oven or the top rack. And place an empty baking tray on the rack beneath the cookie sheet to deflect the direct heat. Hope this helps.

  • abc

    Hi Sailu
    Thank you for the wonderful vegan tutifruiti cookies. I will use Cornstarch instead of Custard Powder since I do not have it handy.

    Thank you

    Hi sailu
    can we make the cookie dough ahead for large quantities and use it later?My daughter has a bake sale in her school so i need to prepare earlier.Please do reply.thank you

    Yes, Pinky, you can. If you feel the dough is crumbly at the time of preparing cookies, add few tbsps of milk.

    • pinky

      Thank you so much for your immediate response

  • sharmila

    Dear Sailu,

    Not many women I know are so sharing of their recipes..such culinary skills are a blessing.
    God bless you and may your tribe increase! Thanks to you so many children, men and women taste what is truly divine.

  • Beatrice

    Dear Sailu ,
    Thank you for such wonderful post, you simply inspire people like me and many to cook and enjoy food!
    The cookies look fabulous, the tutti fruti looks yummlicious, and is there a substitute for the custard powder in this recipe, or is it a must for it since its very hard to get this here. is there something you would advice to mix and match that works near to yours……..

    regards,
    Beatrice

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      I guess, you can replace custard pwd with maida. Instead of 2 cups maida, use 2 1/2 cups maida and add 1/2 tsp cinnamon pwd for added flavor.

    Hi Sailu,
    I tried your tutti fruiti cookies. They turned out well, but did not hold shape like your cookies. I measured the ingredients properly and the baking time was also right…what could i have done wrong?
