SEMOLINA COOKIES / BISKUT SUJI


Since Eid is just around the corner, most of my neighbors have started baking for this special occasion. It is so intoxicating with pleasant aroma  of baked goodies came from their oven.

One of my favorite cookies or biscuit is Semolina Cookies. These cookies can be done with or without semolina, both are additive and delightful.  In fact I had shared this suji cookies  earlier which is done without semolina. Both have the same shape, soft  and buttery but this one is a bit sandy since semolina is added to the dough.

The dough is so easy to work with and mixing is done manually. These are  not so sweet yet delicious. Prefer to make my cookies in small batches but you can double or triple the recipe according to your need. Semolina Cookies is really easy to prepare so there is no excuse for not making them.
