Cookie Exchange 1st Prize Recipe

  • f

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!

  1. Thanks for the recipe--it looks good.

    1. Hi,
      This recipe sounds wonderful. I"m going to try it for this Holiday season. I make a tart (savory- for crab)that also has flour and cornmeal in it and it's just terrific. I don't think that combo can be beat!
