Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 20 cookies
  • 100 gm butter, at room temperature
  • 100 gm All purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100 gm semolina / sooji (use fine and good quality semolina)
  • 50 gm castor / confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom powder
  1. Preheat oven at 160 C (320 F) for ten minutes.
  2. In a bowl, mix the butter and sugar until well combined.
  3. Add the flour, baking powder and semolina to the butter-sugar mixture and mix it together. Add the cardamom and mix until it forms a soft dough.
  4. Shape into small balls of approx 1 inch each. Place these dough balls on a parchment lined baking tray leaving enough space between. They will only spread a little.
  5. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Take out of oven and allow to cool completely. They will still be soft but will turn crisp on cooling.
  6. When completely cool, store in an airtight container.
