Corn Crumbles

This recipe comes from one of the books we picked up for the girls at a library sale.  The girls love the book AND the cookies!

Corn Crumbles


  • 8 Tbl (or one stick) soft butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal (fine or coarse, it doesn’t matter)
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt



  1. In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar, and lemon zest.
  2. Add beaten egg, beat well.
  3. Add cornmeal and salt.  Then add flour, as much as is needed to make the dough dry enough to roll it out.
  4. Preheat oven to 350º F.
  5. Roll dough out, about 1/4 inch thick.  Cut out shapes and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes until the crumbles are golden brown.
  7. Let cool on a rack.
