Semolina and Cashew Cookies

Semolina / Rulang  is a high gluten flour made from the hardest part of the durum wheat.Its used for making pasta and noodles. Semolina is a good fine flour that you can use in cooking & baking . Sri Lankan love cake is made from semolina. I use semolina in baking a lot. This recipe is mainly with cashew and semolina.

Semolina give this cookie a nice and crunchy texture as well as the taste. Add extra more cashew to get the cashews in every bite. I added coffee flavour to the cooie togive a bit of extra flavour. Instead of adding the flavours you can add coffee granules. Other than adding coffee you can substitute it with chocolate, coconut, or any other flavour that you like.

If you are a vegetarian try omitting the egg and add a bit of milk to ghet the correct texture.  Instead of adding cashews you can always substitute with any other kind of a nut.
