Now, I like shortbread but it is not my very favorite thing in the world (I will always choose chocolate first ;) ). These though are really tasty! I used a Meyer lemon for the zest which to me tastes a little bit peppery. Maybe my taste buds are off this morning though. The cornmeal definitely gives these otherwise tender shortbread cookies a crunch factor.
A big thank you to Valerie of Une Gamine dans la Cuisine for choosing this weeks recipe. She is one of my very favorite TWD bakers so make sure to check out her site and give her some comment love! :) Make sure to check out the other bakers as well!
