Cookie Exchange 1st Prize Recipe
This cookie recipe brought me 1st prize at a cookie exchange.
I used fresh sage (3x amt of dried). It is not very sweet and has some texture because of the cornmeal. Frankly, I was surprised it was so well received--almost didn't bring it to the exchange!
Sure, here goes--
1 cup flour
1/3 c. cornmeal
1 T. sugar
1/3 tea. salt
1 stick butter, chilled and cubed
1 T. chilled solid veg. shortening or margarine
2T. ice water
1/2 c. buttermilk
2 egg yolks
2 green onions-finely chop
1/2 tea. fresh or dried ginger
1/2 tea. 5 spice powder
1/2 tea. salt
2 c. crab meat
1 - 2 T. fresh chopped dill
Put all dry crust ing. in food process, process to blend. Add butter & shortening and pulse until it resembles coarse meal. Drizzle in the ice water, pulse until dough comes together in a ball.
Preheat oven to 400 and place a baking sheet in oven to preheat with the oven.
Press dough into a tart pan. Place in freezer while making the filling.
Combine buttermilk and egg yolks. Blend well and add scallions and spices- blend again. Add crab meat, combine and put in tart pan.
Place on baking sheet and bake 35-40 min or until filling is set. Cool 10 min. and serve!
Hope you enjoy this simple, but good tart!
