Fruit Biscuits । Karachi Bakery Fruit Biscuits । Tutti Frutti Biscuits


Fruit Biscuits from Karachi Bakery situated at Hyderabad are one of our family favorites. These biscuits are unique in taste and flavor. They just melt in your mouth and are truly addictive. Since these goodies are not available for us here in Australia, we always had missed them. 
Ever since I started my baking journey, I was trying to replicate the taste of these fruit biscuits. After some experiments and guess works, finally I got it perfect!
Here is my version of Fruit Biscuits or Tutti Frutti Biscuits. Try these delicious biscuits and enjoy with your family :)


Preparation time: 15 - 20 minutes
Refrigeration time: 30 minutes or more
Baking time: 20 - 25 minutes
Yield: 40 - 45 pieces (depending on the size)

Ingredients:
  • All purpose flour / Maida - 5 cups (1 cup = 70 gm approx)
  • Unsalted butter - 185 gm (at room temperature)
  • Sugar - 1 cup (110 gm)
  • Milk powder - 1/2 cup (25 gm)
  • Custard powder - 1/4 cup (13 gm)
  • Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
  • Rose water - 3 tsp
  • Tutti frutti - 100 gm


Method:
  • Take the sugar and make a fine powder in a mixie. Alternatively, you can use the caster sugar available in stores. 
  • Beat the butter in a mixing bowl till creamy. I have used the electric beater to ease this process. 
  • Add the powdered sugar in 2 - 3 batches to the butter. Continue beating till the mixture is fluffy and creamy. 
  • Now, add the vanilla essence and rose water and mix gently.
  • Pour in the custard powder and milk powder and mix it nicely.
  • Add the all purpose flour in small batches and keep mixing till you get a soft, non - sticky dough. If needed, you can add little more extra flour than mentioned above, absolutely no probs!
  • Finally, add the tutti frutti and mix it nicely. 
  • Divide the dough into two equal parts. Take each part of dough, and make it into the shape of a log or as you like.
  • Wrap it in a butter paper and keep refrigerated for 30 minutes or more.
  • Pre heat the oven to 175°C. Line the baking tray with butter paper.
  • Take out the dough from the refrigerator. Cut them into slices of 1 cm width. 
  • Arrange them on the lined baking tray.  Leave some space in between for the biscuits to expand.
  • Bake them for 20 minutes or till done. 
  • Enjoy the delicious biscuits with a cup of tea or just like that!


Tips:
  • You can keep the dough refrigerated even for more than 30 minutes. For me, it took 5 minutes more to bake when I kept the dough in the refrigerator for 1 1/2 hours.
