Polenta Cookies

I’m kind of on a cornmeal in dessert kick. Don’t know why. Last month I hunted for the perfect cornmeal olive oil cake. This month it’s cornmeal cookies. I just couldn’t make them until I had a reason and Saturday night was the perfect opportunity.

Our friends Mary and Pablo (Pablo the famous electrician and tamale maker extraordinaire) invited us for dinner. My contribution was a salad and that’s it but I somehow felt compelled to bring dessert too – that part struck me at 5:00 pm and we were to be there between 6:00 and 6:30. The pressure was on. I had been staring at a Polenta Cookie recipe for quite some time – from Food52 – submitted by someone named Emiko and it looked like I could get it done in the right amount of time so I decided to give the recipe a try.

I was a little uneasy because the last dessert experiment that was undertaken in my kitchen a couple nights before was a bit of a disaster (Right Auntie. . ..) but I thought this one looked pretty promising.
