These cookies are delicate and crispy, like biting into a crunchy slice of sweet cornbread. You can add vanilla instead of the rum. I just did that to compliment the shredded coconut, and it worked like a charm.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease several baking sheets, or line with parchment paper.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until the mixture is soft and creamy. Beat in the egg until well blended. Stir in the cornmeal about 1/4 cup at a time, stirring to blend well after each addition, then stir in the flour, baking soda, lime zest, coconut, salt, and rum until the mixture forms a soft dough. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges just turn golden, 8 to 12 minutes, and allow cookies to cool on the baking sheets before removing. Cookies are very fragile when warm.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This recipe is outstanding! My wife & kids loved these cookies, and I'll make this one again soon. I thought the lime might be overpowering, but it was good.

I love these cookies! Not quite the same consistency as the normal cookie, but still I am happy with it. I doubled the rum (hehe) , and it gives it a little bite of a corn bread texture. I made it for our Mother's Day brunch & everyone loved them.
