Sharing an absolutely delicious, crumbly and crispy, melt in mouth semolina cookies recipe with specs of tutti frutti.

Semolina cookies are as light as feather and crumble very easily. The texture is so good,  they melt in the mouth yet very crunchy. It was my wish from a long time to make these semolina cookies recipe at home. Last week I tried these tutti frutti semolina cookies recipe and it was the big hit.

Addition of tutti frutti is my idea of adding some special factor to this crumbly semolina cookies. Colorful tutti frutti makes the white cookies very attractive. You can even add finely chopped nuts, raisins or just make plain, melt in mouth rava cookies too.

This recipe can be doubled easily if you want to make a bigger batch! When these are baking, the smell of the cookies wafting through the oven will make you want to eat them all.
