Christmas is coming very near and baking season is in full swing everywhere. Though we dont celebrate christmas here but i love the season as i get a chance to bake lots of goodies. My friends have started calling me Baking Fairy who spreads baking love all around, now that certainly makes me very happy! I have been eyeing these gorgeous tutti frutti cookies from Sailu's blog from a very long time and finally i got some time last week to create them. My cookies are not as white as her's since i used vanilla flavored custard powder but that doesnt alter the taste at all. These are soft and chewy in the middle with crispy edges. I shared these with my colleagues and everyone loved it, few even mentioned that these cookies are better than ones we get outside, that certainly made me climb high. The recipe is deifnately a keeper and i'll be making them very often.
These cookies are off to Eat Christmas Cookies - Season 3 hosted by Susan of Food Blogga, you can view the round up page here.
These cookies are also off to the Cakes & Cookies event by Sara and to EC's WYF Tea Time Snacks event. Happy Hosting gals!!

I have made few changes to the original recipe.
Recipe Yields: 14 to 15 cookies
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup vanilla custard powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
tutti frutti morsels for garnishing
- Preheat the oven to 180 C degrees.
- Sift together flour, custard powder, baking soda and baking powder in a bowl.
- Beat together sugar and oil well, add sieved dry ingredients and vanilla essence.
- Mix well to form a dough, the consistency should be right to roll out the dough into round balls.
- Incase the dough is too dry and difficult to roll out balls, add in few drops of milk and chill for few mins.
- Flatten the balls slightly and garnish with bits of tutti frutti morsels, press them slightly in the dough.
- Place the cookies on on greased tray or line the baking pan with parchment paper. I used butter paper as here i donot get parchment paper, butter paper works fine.
- Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 mins, remove the completely cool them.
- Once baked after 12 mins, the cookies might appear soft to touch but they will firm up once completely cooled.
- Store in an air tight container.
