I'm not sure what it is about cornmeal, but I love it.
This week's TWD pick was Cornmeal Shortbread Cookies. I was so excited to make these...the thought of cornmeal, butter, lemon zest and vanilla extract together sounded delicious. I had a wonderful nighttime baking adventure, which of course leads to horribly-colored photos. But oh well.
I adore Dorie's ziplock plastic bag method for rolling out, chilling, and cutting out shortbread. It's genious. (See an example, here.) I'm on a little challenge with my older sister, so I was only allowed to have one cookie. It was worth it. Great texture, buttery and subtly lemon. I'm bringing them to my coworkers tomorrow so I hope they enjoy them.
Une Gamine dans la Cuisine. Don't forget to read the LYL post on the Tuesdays with Dorie site.
Side note: I have like five or so Tuesdays with Dorie catchup recipes to post? How do you think I should do them? Should I stay within the TWD rules and post them on Tuesdays, just before/after my current post? Or should I try something else. I know we might have rewinds, but I just need to get these things up. I've got lots to catchup on.
