FRUITY COOKIES


Adding dried fruit in biscuits  not only help to sweeten this snack but also add a chewy quality. You can add any dried fruit available like dried cranberries, apricot, fig or fruit mix to them.  Along with dried fruit, chopped toasted nuts can be incorporated in the dough but this is optional.

These were very easy to make and so good.  They disappear fast once you laid them on the table.

FRUITY COOKIES

125g soft butter
 80g  powdered sugar
1 and 1/4 C all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 C dry fruit mix
1/4 C chopped nuts (optional)

METHOD

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla until well combined.

Place flour, baking powder  and dry fruit in a mixing bowl. Stir well.

Now add butter mixture to the flour and forms into soft dough.

Roll into small balls and flatten slightly with a fork. Place them onto baking sheet. Preheat oven @ 160 C.

Bake for 20 minutes. Let sit in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring onto wire rack to cool.

When completely cool, store in an airtight container.
