These cookies are good: I didn't change or add anything. Where the recipe calls for butter flavor extract, I just used the same amount of butter. I didn't have any butter extract. Be sure after everything is added that you mix from the bottom of the bowl up. I used my hands to be sure that all the cornmeal was mixed in equally. The time to bake these was not mentioned so, I used a stopwatch and did 2 batches of them at 14 min., and the final batch at 13 min. Both batches came out great. I wouldn't bake them any longer than 14 min. These are also good dipped in milk after they have cooled.

These remind me of Russian Crescent Cookies. The cornmeal gives it the slight coarseness the ground walnuts give the Crescent Cookies. Like another review said, don't cook over 14 minutes. They will harden more once out of the oven. Great bite sized treats and addictive.

These cookies are simple and delicious! I followed the recipe as stated except I skipped the butter flavored extract because I didn't have any. Also there is no baking time listed so I baked them for 13 minutes. These cookies did come out a little dry for me but I'm sure a glass of milk would fix that! All in all our family enjoyed them!

We loved these! They taste like little, sweet bites of cornbread but with a cookie texture. Thanks for the recipe!

Quick,easy & tasty! Didn't have butter extract so I used 1tsp. of vanilla instead. Also used the butter flavored Crisco. (that's what I had on hand) The recipe made 29 cookies using a level 1oz. cookie scoop. Cooked 6 min., rotated the pans & then cooked 7 min. more. Perfect! Make sure to cool the cookies on the sheet pan a bit, otherwise they will fall apart on you. Hubby was skeptical about tasting these because he doesn't care for corn muffins but he had to stop himself after the 4th one. This is a keeper and will be making again. Thanks

Oh boy! So I tried these initially and they totally flopped!! I had used a substitute for the shortening,(not crazy about shortening) and was sure that was the reason they didn't turn out, however I still loved the delicate sweet flavor of the cookie itself. So fast forward to now, made them again and still substituted my shortening again-this time I used cream cheese. They turned out fabulous!! Love love love! A wonderful cookie, and we sprinkled some green and pink sugar on top for fun!
