I've only made one other shortbread cookie, which has cocoa added to it. My kids love decorating them with royal icing. I also made some choc shortbread cookies on sticks as Mother's day gifts for family members. My cousin Shaheema's still walking around with half a cookie in her handbag. She says they're too pretty to eat :D
What's different about this shortbread cookie is the addition of cornmeal or maize meal / mielie meal as it is known in SA. I substituted the cornmeal with polenta because that is what I had on hand. As soon as these cookies came from the oven we dug into them! Crisp, buttery goodness with just a hint of lemon! Absolutely delish!
Its my choice for the next BWD bake and I can't wait to see every one's results.
Now please excuse me while I go make me a cup of tea to indulge a few more before heading off to bed :D
