Egg Less Fruit and Nut Cookies

By Harini
We have a small but very hygienic bakery in our neighborhood which serves some really delectable goodies.I absolutely love their black forest cake,coconut jam cake,masla bun and an array of cookies.Out of so many cookies,I just love their butter cookies,the one that melts in mouth and very crispy,I also like the pale color of those cookies.I have been thinking for a while to bake these cookies.I did not want to use whole wheat flour as that will the change the color of the cookies.I also used a good amount of fruits and nuts as my daughter likes them very much.I baked around 30 cookies and all gone with in a day :) Crispy,buttery and with full of nuts and fruits,munching on these cookies is a pure bliss,I say so,try this for yourself to trust me :)
