Cornmeal Coconut Cookies

Cornmeal Coconut Cookies

Milly Suazo-Martinez

"These cookies are delicate and crispy, like biting into a crunchy slice of sweet cornbread. You can add vanilla instead of the rum. I just did that to compliment the shredded coconut, and it worked like a charm."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease several baking sheets, or line with parchment paper.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until the mixture is soft and creamy. Beat in the egg until well blended. Stir in the cornmeal about 1/4 cup at a time, stirring to blend well after each addition, then stir in the flour, baking soda, lime zest, coconut, salt, and rum until the mixture forms a soft dough. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges just turn golden, 8 to 12 minutes, and allow cookies to cool on the baking sheets before removing. Cookies are very fragile when warm.

This recipe is outstanding! My wife & kids loved these cookies, and I'll make this one again soon. I thought the lime might be overpowering, but it was good.

I love these cookies! Not quite the same consistency as the normal cookie, but still I am happy with it. I doubled the rum (hehe) , and it gives it a little bite of a corn bread texture. I mad...

These cookies were not a favorite, but I'm sure they just meet a required taste. Thanks anyways!

I didn't have the super fine cornmeal, so I used the Albers that I had on hand. Still delish, still light and wholesome, but admittedly a bit gritty at the end...we were ok with that and ate 'em...
