Okee, i chose this recipe because of the rave reviews on Little Corner of mine blog. It was Pusiva's recipe. I modified it because I'm not a fan of desiccated coconut and substituted with almond powder instead. In addition, i added vanilla and almond essence and decreased the sugar by half. It turned out just right because the mixed fruits were pretty sweet.

1 cup plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
8 almonds, chopped very finely
1 cup mixed fruits to give its colorful look ( bought from Loma linda market)
vanilla essence, 1 tsp
almond essence, 1/4 tsp
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add almond powder. Set aside.
Beat together butter, vanilla and almond essence and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the egg and beat again.
Stir in flour mixture and mixed fruits.
Mix until dough forms.
Shape into rolls and wrap them in wax paper or cling film.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Slice the dough logs into thin slices with a serrated knife. OR shape them any way you like...like the way we spelled "ZOEI"
Place on ungreased tray.
Bake them at 175° C (350F) for 10 to 12 minutes or until pale golden.Remove and let it cool on wire rack.
