About dry fruit biscuit

Branded biscuits are available in plenty in the market. But this biscuit is different. Its made from dry fruits, not maida and oil. I borrowed this recipe from my sister; its a favorite of my nephew’s. The preparation is easy and can be ready in a span of only 20 minutes, but since you have to freeze them for 2 hours before they are ready to eat, give yourself about 3 hours in all. These days I prepare it quite often since it can be served as a snack during tea.

What you need to have:

Seedless Dates – 250 grams

Almonds – 15

Cashews – 15

Marie Biscuits – 4 or 5

Pure butter – 2 teaspoons

Sugar – 1-2 teaspoon


Ingredients of seedless Date Biscuit

Ingredients of Dates Biscuit

What you do with what you have:

1. Slice almonds, cashews separately and keep aside.

2.Place a broad based bowl on medium/low flame with 2 teaspoons of butter in it.  On melting add seedless dates and 2 teaspoons of sugar to it. Use a wooden spatula  to stir this mixture to make it a smooth paste.

3. On heating, the dates turn smooth. At this point add cashews and almonds from step 1 and stir well.

4. Lastly add Marie biscuit pieces and switch off the flame.

5. Without any delay, roll this mixture applying a little butter or ghee to your palm. The roll is as shown in the image.

5. Wrap the roll in an aluminum foil and push it into the deep freezer for about 1-2 hours.
