Eggless Tutti-Fruiti Biscuits (Karachi Bakery Style)


Karachi bakery at Hyderabad is known for its signature rich fruit & nut butter biscuits, that melt in your mouth. These biscuits are divinely delicious and very addictive too. My colleagues who visit Hyderabad, make sure to get these to office and they'd get over in a jiffy.
When I came across this recipe in Fondbites, Bake Along group, I bookmarked them and was so tempted to try them at home. I had time this weekend and tried these goodies. And the result------- No one can believe that these are homemade! The biscuit just melted in my mouth and everyone at home loved it.
The best compliment was when dad asked me "Who got them from Hyderabad?"

Warning: Try hard to control yourself or be prepared to work out hard ;-)


Recipe Source: Fondbites, BakeAlong

INGREDIENTS: (Makes 50 medium sized biscuits)
  • Butter - 175g (Unsalted, at room temperature)
  • Icing Sugar (Confectioner's sugar) - 3/4 cup
  • Maida - 1.5 cups
  • Baking powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Salt - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Orange zest - from 1/2 orange
  • Fresh orange juice - 1/8 cup
  • Vanilla extract - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Tutti fuiti - 75g
  • Cashew nuts (Broken) - 1/2 cup


METHOD:
  1. Whisk flour, baking pwder, salt and orange zest together 
  2. Add tutti-fruiti and cashew nuts to the dry ingredients and mix well, so that the fruits and nuts are fully coated with the flour 
     
  3. Soften the butter and beat it for 2 to 3 minutes on medium speed, till it is soft and creamy 
  4. Add the icing sugar and beat on medium to high speed for 5 minutes till it is smooth and creamy 
  5. Add vanilla essence, fresh orange juice and beat for 1 minute at medium speed 
  6. Fold in the dry ingredients and mix till everything is well incorporated. Make sure not to over mix or beat. A soft and creamy dough will be formed 
  7. Take a cling film and place it on the work table. Put the dough in it, shape it in the form of a rectangular log (as shown) and wrap it with the cling film 
  8. Freeze it for 3 to 4 hours or overnight (I frroze it overnight)
  9. Pre-heat the oven to 180C and line a baking tray with butter paper
  10. Once the dough is firm, cut it into squares of about .75cm thickness and place them on the baking tray, an inch apart 
     
  11. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes, till the sides of the biscuits are lightly brown. They will be soft but as they cool down, they will get crisper 
  12. Cool them on a wire rack and store it in an air-tight container 

Enjoy the rich biscuits and feel them melt through your mouth!
