TWD: Cornmeal Shortbreads

Ok I'm going to be honest with you guys. As I was mixing up these cookies my honey was in the kitchen hanging up a new ceiling fan and I said "Wow we really are coming down to the shit recipes now...." he grumbled something like "stupid ceiling fan... fricken fracken wife and her projects" ok he didn't say that but was probably thinking it when he really said something like "What are you making?" I say "Cornmeal Shortbreads" heavily laden with a snort of skepticism because how could these be good? Well I must eat my words... these are SOOO GOOD! Goods not even good enough... they are stupendously buttery and crunchy and oh so yummy! So maybe we aren't down to the shit recipes... maybe we are really down to the hidden gems!
To accommodate my laziness and lack of patience...... I baked a 1/2 (stupid stupid me!) recipe pressed into a 8x8 pan lined with parchment, about 1/2 way thru I poked holes and cut the shortbread into 9 pieces.....that I must go hide from my honey because he just walked by and said "those are pretty good cookie thingies".... I will throw him off the trail with mediocre chocolate chip cookies...

You can get the delicious recipe from Valarie at Une Gamine dans la Cuisine. DO it! Go now to make them!

Looking at your shortbread (and others') makes me excited to try these cookies. I'm always looking to use up some extra cornmeal.
