The treat had been brought all the way from San Francisco to Vancouver by my Aunt Gael. Knowing how much we love baked goods, she had packed them with her.
2 c. flour
1/2 c. cornmeal
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 ½ tsp. ground sage
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 egg yolks
1 ½ tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 tsp. grated orange rind
1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease two baking trays.
2. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sage, and salt. Here’s my grandma to demonstrate:
3. In a separate small to medium bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar, egg yolks, vanilla, and grated orange.
FYI: these cookies freeze well.
