These are really good cookies. They could be made with margarine, but are MUCH better made with BUTTER.


  1. Mix softened BUTTER and sugar until creamy.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla and beat well.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the cornmeal, Baking Powder, salt and flour.
  4. Add to the creamed mixture.
  5. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven about 15 minutes or until lightly brown.

My DH and I have fallen in love with these. They make a great late night snack because they aren't too sweet. Thanks for posting.

I made these last night...they are so easy and taste great! Subsituted Splenda blend for sugar and used margarine(all I had). I messed up on the I wasn't paying attention and used a 1/3 cup measuring cup intead of 1/2 cup. So I wound up only using 1 cup of flour instead of 1 1/2...I liked these better myself. The second batch I got it right and substituted almond for vanilla just to see how they would turn out. DH said the second batch reminded him of a cookie he had as a child in Cuba! When I got home today the cookie jar was empty. Thanks for posting!!
