TWD—Cornmeal Shortbread Cookies

The recipe for Tuesdays With Dorie today was chosen by Valerie from une Gamine dans la Cuisine.  She has written up a great post (and posted some fantastic photos) for these cookies—she also has the recipe.  Check it out because she said everything I was thinking of writing about the cookies!  I made them a couple weeks ago.  Love them.

DSCF4681 These have a nice little crunch from the cornmeal and since they are shortbread they have a buttery tenderness.  The lemon zest kicked them up a notch, too.  A crunchy cookie with lots of butter that is pretty much only liked by me at our house is dangerous.  I’m glad I gave most of them away! ;)

I'm so glad you like these! Your cookies look delicious, so much so that I'm tempted to snatch one through the screen. :D

Hmm. Cornmeal. So...are they like the cookie version of cornbread? They look good :)

I bet these were awesome. I like the added texture that cornmeal would give.

Katrina, These look great. As much as I love cornmeal in baked goods, I know I would love these. I'll have to give them a try.

How cute is that box?? It reminds me of the box the local donut chain uses for donut holes (though their boxes aren't nearly as pretty) - yum :)

Shortbread is hard to improve on, but the conrmeal certainly is one way you can try. These look delicious. I love the flavor of cornmeal.

I just found your blog, and I must say it is my new favourite! I can't wait to try some of your recipes!

Yours look perfect! I'm sure the non-bloggers don't understand us baking and then rushing to get the goods out the door, lol. (Just means we have lots of happy friends, family, and neighbors.)

Your cookies look perfect, and I wish I had been on the receiving end of that lovely package of cookies!
