For Week 2 of BM #36, I have chosen to showcase some cookies which have been loved by my friends and family and have been made over and over again in my kitchen.
For Day 1 , here are some colorful cookies which I made for Christmas and shared with my friends and neighbors.
My older one was so much in love with these that I am being pestered to make these again. I had bookmarked these a long time back but never attempted. I am glad to have tried these.

Maida / All Purpose Flour 1 cup
Tutti Frutti 1/3 cup (any dried fruit finely chopped would work)
Butter 6 Tbsp (at room temperature)
Sugar, Powdered 1/2 cup
Milk 2 Tbsp
Method Of Preparation -
In a mixing bowl, add the flour and tutti frutti and set aside.
In another bowl, whisk butter, sugar and milk until it is light and fluffy.
Mix the butter mixture to the flour and knead to a soft/sticky dough.
Divide the dough into two equal portions (for easy manageability).
On parchment paper, roll each portion of the dough into a log of approximately 1 inch diameter and cover it up. Freeze the logs thus covered for about 45 min.
Preheat the oven to 375 °F.
Remove the dough logs from the freezer and slice them into 5-6 mm thick discs. [They do not increase in size as compared to their pre baked size].
Arrange them on cookie trays lined with parchment paper.
Bake them for about 12 minutes until the edges are light brown.
Upon cooling store them in air tight container.
