TWD: Cornmeal Shortbread Cookies


Valerie of Une Gamine dans la Cuisine chose Cornmeal Shortbread Cookies for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe.

This was a perfect recipe for Easter week because it was simple and the cookies were delicious.


They were buttery with just the right amount of sweetness, plus they had an added crunch thanks to the cornmeal. I really loved them and was glad I only made 1/4 recipe.

The only change I made to the recipe was to bake them for shorter than called for - only about 17 minutes, so they would stay a wee bit soft.

Thanks Valerie for a great pick and thanks Dorie for another fantastic recipe. Please check out Valerie's blog (link in the first paragraph above) or Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, from My Home to Yours".

Yours look great! With all the Easter baking I sort of forgot about these and then I tried them and was blown away by how good they were.
