Tuesdays With Dorie: Cornmeal Shortbread Cookies April 26, 2011

This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Valerie of Une Gamine dans la Cuisine.  She picked Dorie’s Cornmeal Shortbread Cookies which are located on page 130 in Baking: From My Home to Yours.  These cookies are essentially lemon shortbread cookies with a hint of cornmeal in them.

I decided to only make half a recipe, however, I did use the zest from one lemon because I love that citrusy flavor.  The dough came together without any problems, and I just used one bowl and a spatula to mix everything.   The longest anything took was the wait time for the dough to firm up in the fridge before baking.

I probably should have cut these into smaller squares, but they turned out great none the less.  I really liked the flavor of these cookies with the lemon, and I couldn’t really tell that there was any cornmeal in it.  It essentially just gave the cookie a pale yellow color.

    I guess the pale yellow colour is what makes them so close to the shortbread I know from the store. I loved it – this will stay my favourite shortbread recipe!
