When we go grocery shopping, Jason always tries to buy cookies. Usually, I tell him no and he puts them back. Of course, then I bake him cookies as it’s cheaper, they taste better, and they tend to have less sugar so I can enjoy them too.
In our Halloween card, my maternal grandma included $5, saying to use the money to buy Jason cookies. Apparently, she was very offended on Jason’s behalf that I didn’t indulge his cookie-buying whim.
Grandma, here are some cookies I made for Jason. He is not deprived of delicious cookies.
The original recipe is from Melissa.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 tsp ground ginger
Pinch of salt
1 cup unsalted butter melted
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup of honey
1/4 cup of finely grated lemon zest
2 large egg yolks
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Whisk flour, cornmeal, salt and ginger together.
Whisk cooled melted butter, oil, sugar, honey, egg yolk, and zest.
Stir in the flour mixture.
Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray or butter the cookie sheet. Place tablespoon-sized balls of the dough about an inch apart on the sheet. They should be about 1/4 of an inch thick. (In my picture, I flattened them a bit as the recipe called for it. However, I think the pan I didn’t flatten turned out better.)
Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes. Until edges start to brown.
