Crisp cookies that melt in your mouth – these fragrant Semolina Cardamom Cookies need just few ingredients & are a perfect tea time snack!
We are back with another super simple recipe that needs just 6 ingredients and just 30 mins from start to finish! Don’t you just love those recipes that are super quick and you know that you won’t be waiting too long to eat them?! Atleast I do and since today’s recipe by lovely Kaveri has made me crave these fragrant cookies so much that after finishing this post, I am off to baking a batch of these for us for sure! Watch out I will be sharing them on instagram, so remember to check out!
These cookies in Kaveri’s words -> Crisp and crumbly, melt-in-the mouth semolina cookies are perfectly paired with a cup of tea. The aromatic cardamom lends a lovely delicate flavor to these light cookies. Not too sweet, these are a perfect everyday indulgence. So easy to make and I am sure you will have all the ingredients for these cookies in your pantry! This recipe can be doubled easily if you want to make a bigger batch! When these are baking, the smell of the cookies wafting through the oven will make you want to eat them all.
I have a weakness when it comes to desserts and these cookies have already broken my resolution of staying away from desserts for today! 😛 Yeah it was only a one day resolution! You thought I wasn’t going to eat desserts for a month?!:P

- 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
- Preheat oven at 160 C (320 F) for ten minutes.
- In a bowl, mix the butter and sugar until well combined.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- When completely cool, store in an airtight container.

what is the meaning of All purpose flour????? is these maida or wheat flour..
naivecookcooks saysJuly 12, 2016 at 2:31 AM
all purpose flour is maida 🙂
neha saysJuly 15, 2016 at 8:48 AM
Cn I use whole wheat flour instead of all purpose. And ghee instead of butter
naivecookcooks saysJuly 15, 2016 at 9:56 AM
Neha you can use whole wheat but it won’t give the same great taste and texture. I would suggest sticking with the recipe for getting the best results 🙂

This very morning while having a cup of tea and reading an old recipe for semolina cookies came back as nostalgia. Though I also ain’t any professional chef but I am sure that the recipe will get me back into the times of my childhood. Thanks for the share. Also I noticed in a photographs of yours displaying a teabag that too is from one of my favourite brand.
Keep on sharing
naivecookcooks saysMay 8, 2017 at 7:26 PM
Thanks Chanchal! Hope you tried these out 🙂 They indeed remind me of childhood as well 🙂
