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.
