Passion Fruit Cookies

I had plenty passion fruit pulp, or maracuya as we say in Argentina, in my freezer. And I wanted to use it for something never seen.
I checked for cookies with this, and nothing satisfied me. So I made the recipe.

The beauty about this cookies is that the smell and flavour of the fruit is still there, it doesn´t change. You know what are you eating as soon the first bit goes into your mouth. And then comes the crunchy from the seeds. I like them, makes the cookie  more interesting in my opinion.
