CNY 2012 – Sugee Semolina Cookie

If you and I are of the same era, you will find these cookies similiar to those biscuits sold in coffee shops during the 70’s.  Usually these biscuits are stored in the glass container placed at the counter in those days.  I cannot recall how much each biscuit cost, I think it’s about 10cents per piece.  They were crispy and crunchy, tasted like those I had eaten when I was a small kid.

Above Sugee Semolina Cookie is Butter Cookie, recipe is here.  See below for Sugee Semolina Cookie from Cherry on a Cake.
