Citrus Polenta Cookies

Need a little sunshine in your winter? I know I do, especially here where its constantly cloudy and drizzly. What better way to bring sunshine than these golden yellow cookies infused with light citrus flavor?

They are kind of the perfect combination between cornbread and cookies.

I really just don't have too much to say except to give you this recipe. Warning: you can't very well sneak one of these without anyone noticing because they are really crumbly.

Citrus Polenta Cookies
1/2 cup polenta
1/2 cup all-purpose, self-rising gluten free mix
1/4 teaspoon salt
grated rind of 1/2 a lemon
grated rind of 1/2 an orange
4 tablespoons vegan butter
1/2 cup raw cane sugar
1 large egg

*makes about 18 cookies*

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

First, whisk together the polenta, flour, salt, and grated rind.

Then add in 4 tablespoons of softened vegan butter. Mix together as well as you can.

Add in the egg and continue to mix until you get a dough.

Roll into small/medium sized balls and place on a buttered pan.

Bake for 18-20 minutes.

Do you see the pretty little specs of orange? That's my favorite part. Oh and the tacky paper napkin? My second favorite part.
