Wednesday, June 07, 2006 Another Cornmeal Cookies Recipe - Recipe Lost and Found

This recipe is for Terri who was requesting the recipe for Cornmeal Cookies. I have a Cooperative Extention Cookbook from the 60's that my mother gave me many years ago. I have made many recipes from it, but have never tried the cornmeal cookie recipe. I hope this is the one you are looking for.


Cornmeal Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Cream shortening; add sugar gradually and cream well. Beat in egg until light and fluffy. Add vanilla. Sift remaining ingredients together and add to the creamed mixture; mix thoroughly. Shape dough into rolls and chill in refrigerato 2 hours or overnight. Cut cookies off roll and bake at 400° for about 6 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Do not overcook.

The recipe doesn't say how many it makes.
