They really are so easy to put together and if you don't have the time to pipe them out with a star shaped tip (as I was going to do and then was rushing), you could make them like I did. I even found a recipe for a polenta sheet cookie that you just break apart (talk about fun and easy!). The point is, you have to make these cookies...they are just delicious! And if you aren't interested in a gluten-free cookie, use your favorite all-purpose flour (or even whole wheat flour) instead.
I used King Arthur Flour – gluten free multi-purpose flour for these cookies. Just so you know, I have no affiliation with King Arthur Flour. I know a friend or two that use their GF multi-purpose flour and thought it would be a good one to try to bake some things with during the holidays. You could also use your own custom blended GF flour or use another brand or even use all-purpose flour, the cookies will still be great!
Did I tell you how much I love these cookies? I love the subtle corn flavor and the sweet buttery aroma. I love the touch of lemon zest and how crumbly and delicate they are and how easy the whole recipes is to put together. They are so perfect to have for breakfast with your hot coffee (espresso, cappuccino or a relaxing cup of tea). And in the afternoon when you need a relaxing bread, you will find yourself grabbing another one or two with your afternoon coffee (at least I find myself doing that). Go ahead and have one in the afternoon, you deserve a break!
