Lola’s Kitchen is a feature on Lola’s Reviews where I talk about all things related to food, cooking and baking. These posts can be recipe posts, tens list posts about food or recipes or more discussion type posts about food. I love cooking and spend some time in the kitchen almost every day, so I wanted to give it a place on my blog as well. The banner for this feature is designed by Michelle from Limabean Designs.

When the corona virus hit last year one of the things that got out of stock was flour. While I had bought some flour beforehand, I quickly ran low on flour due to my regular baking. When my flour was getting low, I decided to look for flour alternatives and found this recipe for semolina cookies. I decided to give it a try and these turned out delicious. They have a nice texture, crunchy, but not too hard. And the taste is great, buttery and with a mild cardamon taste.

This recipe is based on Naive Cook Cooks their semolina cardamon cookies recipe



  • Semolina – 150 gram/ 0.8 cup
  • Flour – 150 gram/ 1 1/5 cup
  • Butter – 150 gram/ 0.6 cup/ 1 1/3 stick
  • Sugar – 80 gram/ 2/5 cup
  • Baking Powder – 1 1/2 teaspoons
  • Cardamon Powder – 1 1/2 teaspoons


  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius/ 320 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover a baking sheet with baking proof paper.
  2. First melt the butter for 30 second in the microwave. Then combine with the sugar and mix well.
  3. Now add the flour, semolina, baking powder and cardamon and mix for a minute or so.
  4. Using your hands roll the dough in small balls and place these on the baking sheet. These won’t rice as much, so you can place them relatively close together. bake them for 20 minutes. Then repeat until all cookies are baked.
  5. Let them cook and then you can eat them or store them in an airtight container.
