Serves 2 dozen | Prep Time 15 minutes | Cook Time 18 minutes

Ingredients

1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder


In a bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla until well blended.


In another bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, and baking powder. Stir or beat into butter mixture until well blended.


Divide dough in half and form each portion into a 2-inch-thick log. Roll waxed paper tightly around each log to wrap airtight. Freeze until dough is firm enough to slice neatly, at least 2 hours, or up to 3 weeks.


Unwrap dough. Using a thin, sharp knife, cut logs crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Lay slices 3 inches apart on buttered or cooking parchment-lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets; if cookies flattened when cut, reshape with your fingers.


Bake cookies in a 350° oven until edges are slightly browned, 15 to 18 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking. With a wide spatula, transfer cookies to racks to cool.



These are a bit hard to see when they are done baking. Check the bottom of one cookie for slight browning. They will not get brown like other more traditional cookies.

Notes

A lovely, crunchy icebox cookie. Mix up an double batch, put them in your freezer and have cookies ready in minutes whenever you want them. Just slice and bake.

A dash of local for every season
