  • Preheat oven in convection mode for 180c. Arrange in the cookies in a butter greased baking tray. Bake it for 15 minutes.The sides of cookie will turn slightly brown. Remove the cookie tray and let it cool. Initially they look soft when hot but it becomes crunchy after cooling down completely.
  • The cookies will come out without sticking to the plate. Suppose if it sticks to the plate after it cools down, bake them again for 2 minutes & then remove, let it cool.You can find the actual taste of these cookies only after they cool down completely. Store in an air tight box. Hope it stays good for 3-4 days.

  • Adding milk powder is optional.
  • Adjust the quantity of tutti frutti as per your wish. But if you add more, cookie may turn soft and chewy. So take care.

  • You should bake the cookies till the sides of cookie turn golden brown as you see in the picture.
