Stella's Vegan Semolina cookies
1 1/2 cups semolina flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour (I used Arrowhead Mills Organic)
1 cup light brown sugar (I used Florida Crystals brand)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon allspice or cinnamon
1/2 cup oil (I used canola)
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon orange blossom water (optional)
vegan chocolate chips to push into cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine flours, baking powder, salt, and allspice in a bowl and mix well. In a separate bowl, place oil, sugar, water and extracts and mix well. Slowly sift dry mixture into the wet mixture. Do not overmix. Roll quarter size balls out of mixture and place on parchment paper/baking pan. Once lined up properly, you can push a nut or topping of your choice into the cookie ball. I used vegan chocolate chips, but you can be even more authentic to the Moroccan/Algerian traditions and just push a coffee bean into the center of your cookie ball! This also helps to flatten the ball a bit as well as add flavor and eye candy. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 and allow to rest for 5 minutes before putting them on a cool plate.
