Sometimes, you just gotta have a cookie. That's how I felt the other night, but I didn't want to go into a long and laborious, time consuming cookie making session. Those times are left to Christmas when I want to make special recipes that are a bit more involved and require a bit of attention to detail.

No, I wanted something very quick, easy, healthy and tasty. So I headed to my Everyday Food Magazine collection and found this recipe which filled the bill. I'm not sure, but I think these cookies have their origin in Italy. (don't quote me on that!). They are more of a "crunchy" cookie, rather than a soft and chewy cookie. They are great with a cup of tea and have a wonderful, fresh lemon taste.

How to Make Lemon-Cornmeal Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350. In a small bowl, whisk together four, cornmeal, lemon zest and salt.
  2. a large bowl mix butter, sugar, and egg until combined. Gradually add dry ingredients until moistened.
  3. Pinch off and roll dough between hands to form balls, each equal to 1 1/2 TBL (I used a small cookie scoop for uniform size). Place on 2 baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. With fingers or palm of hand, flatten balls to 3/4 inch thickness.
  4. Bake until lightly browned around edges, 20-25 minutes; transfer to racks to cool completely.

    enjoy!
