how to make tutti frutti cookies

hyderabad tutti frutti cookies/biscuits

1 1/2  cup all purpose flour/maida
2 tbsp custard powder (i used pineapple flavor)
1/2 cup  plus 1 tbsp (I used amul)
1/2 cup sugar powdered
1/2 to3/4 cup tutti frutti
8-10 cashews chopped fine (optional)
1/2 tsp pineapple essence or 1 tsp vanilla essence.
1 to 2 tbsp milk/ as needed .

In  a bowl mix butter & sugar till creamy n fluffy .

Mix flour ,custard powder , tutti fruitti & essence to it.

Then add milk & mix to soft dough.

Cover the dough in foil /butter paper & Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or leave it overnight

Dust the surface with the flour roll out the dough or cut in desired shapes with cookie cutters/with knife.

I shape it into a log wrap into cling foil and then place it in a rectangular box and refrigerate it ,later cut it with knife.

Preheat the oven for 10 min at 170 degree Celsius

Place the cookies on lined baking tray leaving gaps in between.

Bake for 12-15 min/until the edges turn brown at 170 degree Celsius

Transfer them on cooling rack ,once cool transfer them in air tight containers.

You may add any flavoured custard powder or simply use cornflour.
You can use unsalted butter in that case add a small pinch of salt. 
The dough can be kept in the fridge for 2 to 3 hours or overnight .
Baking time may vary in each oven usually takes 16 to 18 minutes max.
The cookies appear to be soft while its baked but after cooking they are perfect. 
I use 1/2 cup powdered sugar and the sweetness is perfect for us as we add tutti frutti which is sweet too you may increase the sugar to 3/4 cup if you prefer more sweet cookies.
you can try it with wheat flour too but the cookies will turn out slightly hard
