Stepwise pictorial recipe of Eggless Tutti Fruity cookies, also known as Karachi Biscuits.
After making Eggless Tutti Fruity cake, I was left with a hand full of tutti fruities and wanted to make out something which will not merely accomplish my purpose of finishing the leftover tutti Fruity, but at the same time it must be something full of taste, health and easiness in making.

They were so easy to make and can be stored for later use. Also known by the name Fruit Biscuits or Karachi Biscuits.

****The purpose of milk is only to bind the dough together. So use carefully. Dough shouldn’t become too loose due to extra use of milk. Use as per need primarily.
*****Since the temperature varies from oven to oven, it may takes less or more time in baking. So do keep an eye while you are baking the cookies. Do not over bake them as then they will become very hard.
******Initially the cookies will look soft when hot but after cooling down , they will become crunchy.
