moroccan semolina and almond cookies

I really think these Moroccan Semolina and Almond Cookies might be some of the prettiest I’ve made. I love their crinkles and crackles and irregular edges. And their yellow insides peeking out from their powdered sugar coats. The semolina and almond flours in the dough contribute to a sandy texture, and lemon zest and orange blossom water give the cookies bright flavor. The cookie dough balls are rolled in powdered sugar before being pressed like thumbprints in their centers, which gives them their unique personalities. They’re totally charming and perfect with a cup of herbal tea.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  1. I loved these biscuits too – not too sweet and quite good looking.

  2. Wow!! They look even prettier than the ones in the book. Now I know what Dorie meant when she said she was captivated by Their looks. I’m going to try my hand at making these again inspired by your results, and hope for better results. Wish me luck! I will need it.
