Semola con leche (yummy dessert )

This is really traditional in my country, and I don't know if oyu have tasted it, but I love it. Eating it makes me happy xD and it is not something decadent or elavorated like chocolate souffle or a pie.

You need:

3/4 cup semolina flour
3/4 cup sugar (if you want sweeter, add more!)
2 cinnamon sticks (I added ground cinnamon, cause didn't have sticks)
4 cups milk
*And I added some orange peel that then removed, but this is tottally optional (though I recomend it)

Put milk, sugar, cinnamon and orange peel in a saucepan. Let milk boil and then sprinkle semolina flour. Mix with a wooden spoon and let cook for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and place in a square pan. Let cool to room temperature and then refrigerate at least 2 hours. You'll be able to cut it in squares and serve. If you want, you can put the mix in individual pots. It is originally served with a sauce made with "chancaca" (also known as panela sugar or piloncillo), but I topped the portions with raspberry jam, or you can add caramel sauce.

I recomend removing the orange peel and the cinnamon sticks before adding the semolina, though a lot of recipes don't call for it until the mix have cooled a little after cooking. I do it this way because when the dessert has cooled and you remove the sticks and peel, they take with them some dessert, and I dont want to loose even the minimal ammount of that, I love it so much to loose any.

Well, I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as I do =)
