1 cup OLD MILL Yellow or White Stone Ground Cornmeal

1 1/2 cups OLD MILL Plain Unbleached Flour

1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon rind

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

1 cup confectioners’ sugar

1 large egg

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 tablespoons poppy seeds

1 cup confectioners’ sugar, optional

2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, optional

Whisk Old Mill Unbolted Cornmeal, Old Mill Plain Unbleached Flour, lemon rind, and salt in a medium bowl.

Beat butter until fluffy in large bowl of an electric mixer;  add 1 cup confectioners’ sugar and beat well.  Add egg, lemon juice, and vanilla; beat at low speed until well blended.  Add Old Mill Unbolted Cornmeal mixture;  beat at low speed until blended.  Stir in poppy seeds.

Shape into two 8-inch rolls; wrap in wax paper and refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.  Cut rolls into 1/4-inch slices;  arrange on baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart.  Bake until edges are golden, 10 to 12 minutes.  Let cool on baking sheets 2 minutes;  transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

If desired, mix confectioners’ sugar and lemon juice until smooth; spread on cookies.  Makes 5 1/2 dozen.

Note:  To bake 1 roll at a time, wrap the other in plastic wrap, then foil, and freeze up to

2 months.
