Fruit mix cookies
I had a packet of Fruit trail mix.Actually my plan was to bake a fruit cake and I postponed it and ended up making fruit cookies..I browsed soooo many recipes on the internet and came up with this one..my own version :)
All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cup
Softened Butter - 1/2 cup(at room temperature)
Light brown sugar - 1/4 cup
baking soda - 1/2 tsp
baking powder - 1/2 tsp
vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Egg - 1
Dried fruits - 3/4 cup(I used archer farms fruit trail mix which had dried cranberries,papaya,golden raisins,cherries)
Preheat the oven to 350 def F.Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a wide bowl,cream the butter and both brown sugar and regular sugar into a smooth paste.Add the vanilla essence and egg into it.Beat the egg until creamy.
Then add the allpurpose flour along with baking soda and baking powder into the wet ingredients.
Stir until the dry ingredients incorporate well into the wet ingredients.
Finally,gently mix the roughly chopped dry fruits into the mixture.
Now scoop 1 tbsp of cookie dough into the prepared pan leaving about 2 inches space between them.
Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes until the cookies turn slightly brown on the edges.
