Author: Canadian Living

These rustic cornmeal S shapes, inspired by Italian krumiri cookies, are a delicious change of pace from traditional sweet cookies. Dust with icing sugar if desired.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup cold butter cut_into small pieces
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind

Method

Line 2 rimless baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

In large bowl, whisk flour with cornmeal; using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until crumbly.

In separate bowl, beat together egg yolks, sugar and vanilla until thickened, about 5 minutes. Scrape over flour mixture. Add lemon rind; beat at medium speed just to blend. (Dough will be stiff but manageable.)

On work surface and working with 1/4 cup (50 mL) batter at a time, roll and shape into 15-inch (38 cm) long ropes. Cut into 3-inch (8 cm) lengths; bend into S shapes. Place, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on prepared pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Bake in top and bottom thirds of 375°F (190°C) oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, until golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on sheets on racks for 3 minutes; transfer cookies to racks and let cool. (Make-ahead: Layer in airtight container and store for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 4 weeks.)
