    ellie_'s Note:

    I came across this recipe while looking for interesting things to use up some blue cornmeal. I thought these sounded interesting and nice for a change of pace to serve with southwestern soup or salad. If blue cornmeal is not available yellow cornmeal can be subsituted. Although the recipe calls for cornstick pans, regular muffin pans will also work well. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (June 1987)

      Made this as per recipe. It made 12 rather full cornmeal sticks. The butter is interesting and okay, but probably not something I would make again. As for the cornmeal sticks if DH has his way, I will be making them again and soon. :)
