Lemon Cornmeal Cookies
I've got another great cookie book called The Good Cookie by Tish Boyle. These cookies are not your standard fare...they're grand. I made the lemon cornmeal cookies because I had all the ingredients in my cupboard. Boyle writes "Known as crumiri in Italy, these are a traditional cookie from the Piedmont region, where cornmeal is extremely popular, although it is used most often in polenta. The cornmeal creates a pleasingly coarse texture and offers a subtle flavor that is the perfect platform for the lemony endnote." (162) Well, she's right. I really enjoy cornmeal cookies - these ones came out crunchy, but not hard. My kids really enjoyed them too which is saying a lot. Perfect with tea, as most cookies are.
