These are FANTASTIC!! I love cookies made with cornmeal, just a totally different texture. DH and Kids loved them...eating them as fast as I could bake them! They are soft, moist and nutty. Mmmmm! I substituted Splenda Baking Blend for sugar, used pecans...everything else did the same. Thanks so much for this recipe!!

Interesting and addictive little cookies. Texture makes me think of sandy cookies. Soft and nutty like Heartspell said is right. Your will find these very different from any other cookie you have ever made. When I baked my 2nd batch, I placed a whole pecan on top of each. NICE.
