How to Make It
In a medium saucepan, cook the semolina, butter and pine nuts over moderate heat, stirring, until the pine nuts are golden, about 5 minutes. Add 1 1/4 cups of the sugar, the milk and 1 1/4 cups of water and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until very thick, 10 minutes.
Sprinkle the remaining sugar on top, cover and let stand until warm, 10 minutes. Serve in bowls topped with the walnuts and cinnamon.
Fine semolina (semolina flour) is available at specialty stores and from Amazon.
