Growing up, there were few food choices I disliked. However, I do remember a handful of occasions when I sat at the table by myself. The reason, there was something on my plate I did not want to eat or maybe it was the Nestle’s Quick Chocolate Milk I didn’t care to drink. I honestly can’t remember for sure. However, I can remember the hint of chocolate was not sufficient enough for me, even then. That must have been the reason for the solitary minutes I spent at the table trying to talk myself into drinking the milk with the smidgen of Nestle’s Quick .
Funny this cookie does not contain a whiff of chocolate. It does have a tiny sweet crunch from the small addition of corn meal. A short bread cookie, rich with butter, and the rest of the typical ingredients one finds in a shortbread recipe. Along with those usual ingredients, cornmeal and citrus zest of lemon, however, I used lime. I am fond of it and its pretty and fresh in the dough. These a a wonderful departure from chocolate. Definitely a cookie I will keep in my cookie collection.
