Recipe: Lemon-Zucchini Cornmeal Cookies

This recipe is from Everyday Food Magazine, September 2009, page 136. I have a subscription to the magazine and really enjoy the recipes. I find the featured recipes are mostly in season, and easy to make. IV>

In their September 2009 edition they have a great recipe for Lemon-Zucchini Cornmeal Cookies. Oh my, these are lemony and delicious! The only thing I did differently from the recipe is I pealed my zucchini prior to shredding - which I came to realize later I didn't have to do!

Lemon-Zucchini Cornmeal Cookies

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup confectioners' sugar

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon packed finely grated lemon zest

1 teaspoon coarse salt

1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)

1/2 cup fine cornmeal

1 medium zucchini, grated on small holes of a box grater (about 1 cup)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar with a wooden spoon until pale and fluffy. Stir in vanilla, lemon zest, and salt. Add flour and cornmeal and mix until mixture is crumbly. Add zucchini and stir until a thick dough forms.

Drop by rounded tablespoons, 2 inches apart, onto two parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until cookies are light golden brown at edges, 25 to 30 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Let cool completely on wire racks.

Makes 25 cookies.
