cornmeal shortbread cookies

If you are looking for a crunchy, buttery, sweet little cookie to serve with tea, Cornmeal Shortbread may your thing.  A pop of citrus zest adds extra flavor (I used orange), and that little bit of grittiness from the cornmeal boosts the crumbly texture typical of shortbread.  I’m glad to have a stash of extras in the freezer!

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan or read Une Gamine dans la Cuisine, as it was Valerie’s pick this week.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!
