NOTE : 

  • As a variation you can add orange juice instead of milk and  orange zest instead of essence. 
  • If you don't have tutti fruttis you may replace it with cashews , nuts , raisins etc . 
  • Keeping the cookie dough in the fridge will harden it. You can cut into desired shape later easily . 
  • Use a sharp knife to get a smooth finish on the cookies.While cutting the cookies,cookies may crumble lightly. Use your fingers and press gently on the cracks. It will be fine.
  • The baking time may vary a bit . You should bake till the sides of cookie turn golden brown .it may take 15-20 mins depending on your oven.
  • increase the butter quantity to 3/4th cup if you are ok for more better texture . 
  • Don't add 5 tbsp of milk at once. We dont want our dough to become moist. Add 3 tbsp first and later if required add 1-2 tbsp more.
