Eggless Semolina Cookies


This is the definitive Indian Cookie. Countless recipes have all sorts of different ingredients but they all contain semolina and all purpose flour. Many decades ago, women would prepare their cookie dough at home and take it to a communal oven or bakery for the baker to bake. The cookies would then be delivered back to them..
