Are you looking for a new cookie to try? Cornmeal cookies have a similar texture to sugar cookies but with a different flavor that works really well. If you like the taste of cornbread or polenta, you will love this unique cookie recipe.
I love to visit bakeries, especially if they have new-to-me cookies and desserts to try. A few years ago, I tried a cornmeal cookie at a bakery in Santa Barbara, CA, and fell in love with it. It reminded me of a sugar cookie but less sweet with the distinctive flavor of corn. It really worked.
I still think about that cookie and have been working on a copycat recipe ever since. Finally, I’ve landed on a version that tastes like the cookie I loved so much. It’s a new favorite recipe at our house – if you’ve been wanting to branch out, you should definitely give this cornmeal cookie recipe a try.
Why We Love Cornmeal Cookies
The cookies are chewy in the middle with crispy edges like a classic sugar cookie, but the cornmeal mixed into the dough gives them a unique twist.
