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.
Sugee Semolina Cookie

100g plain flour
25g ground almonds
Some almond flakes
For glazing : egg white
1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Add in flour and mix well.
3. Add the semolina and ground almond and mix to a firm and smooth dough.
4. Pinch a little dough and roll into round, then flatten lightly.
5. Brush some egg white and place a slice of almond flake on it.
6. Bake at 180C for about 10 mins, or until light golden brown. Cool on a wire rack and store them in air-tight containers.
