Italian Polenta Cookies

I have cold and you can hear it in this one, I edited out the nose blowing :) These cookies are are very tender and also have a very interesting texture because of the cornmeal. Music by Jason Shaw Jason 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour 1 cup Italian Polenta or coarse yellow cornmeal 1/2 tsp salt 1 cup butter at room temperature 2/3 cup sugar 1 tbsp finely grated lemon zest (the caption says peel in the video, but it is zest) 1 large egg plus one egg yolk 1 tsp vanilla extract Mix flour, corn meal and salt together set aside Cream together butter, lemon zest, egg and egg yolk, sugar and vanilla together until light and fluffy. Blend in flour a little at a time until it is well combined. Transfer batter into a pastry bag with a large star tip. Pipe S shapes about 3 inches long and 1 inch wide, spacing 1.5 inches apart on baking sheet lined with parchment, silicone mats or grease them. Place the cookie sheet in freezer for 30 minutes until dough is chilled and firm. Bake cookies at 350 for about 15-18 minutes until edges are brown.

    Hey yoyomax12!
    I just made these cookies and they taste AMAZING.
    The piping bag didnt work out for me because my
    batter was to thick but that was ok! I have a request
    for a recipe. Can you make a yule log by any chance?
    That would be awesome!

  12. garycalgary says:

    how DARE you besmirch the reputation of fine italian polenta and use peasant corn


    What snobbery the italians are.

  13. yoyomax12 says:

    It is sweet, but not super sweet. Same level of sweetness as a digestive biscuit or a graham wafer to give you an idea.

  14. Canadiangurl75 says:

    I was wondering, is this a sweet cookie or more of a savory/salty kinda cookie. It may be a dumb question. ;) thanks.

  15. yoyomax12 says:

    Good idea. I like the idea of sprinkles before they are baked and will try that if our cookie shooter will handle the stiffness of that dough.
