Lemon Cornmeal Cookies
I inherited this recipe from my sister for my wedding. I tried it for the first time last night...they're delicious!
3/4 Cup all purpose flour
1/4 Cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
4 Tbsp Softened butter or Margarine
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp grated lemon rind
1 tsp vanilla
1 Large egg white
1.) Combine flour, cornmeal, soda, and salt. Stir well and set aside.
2.) Beat margarine at medium speed of a mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beating until well blended. Add lemon rind, vanilla, and egg white; beat well. Add flour mixture, stir until well blended.
3.) Turn dough onto wax paper and shape into a 6 inch log. Wrap log in wax paper and freeze for 3 hours or until very firm. (I used saran wrap since I didn't have any wax paper.)
4.) Preheat Oven to 350*.
5.) Cut log into 24 (1/4 inch thick) slices, place slices 1" apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. bake at 350* for 8 minutes. Remove cookies from pans and let cool on wire racks.
Hoison Grilled Shrimp Kabobs
Out of "Quick, Light, and Healthy" cookbook
1 1/2 pound unpeeled large fresh shrimp
1-8 oz can pineapple chunks in juice
1 sweet red pepper, cut into 1 inch chunks
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp Hoisin sauce (To make your own mike 3 Tbsp brown sugar, 3 tbsp soy sauce, and 1/4 tsp garlic powder)
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1.) Peel and devein shrimp. Drain pineapple, reserving 2 Tbsp juice.
2.) Thread shrimp, pineapple chunks, and pepper onto 8-10" skewers. Combine reserved pineapple juice, Hoison sauce, and garlic. Stir well. Brush half of mixture over both sides of kabobs.
3.) Grill kabobs, covered, over medium-hot coals (350*-400*) 8 minutes or until shrimp turn pink, turning once and brushing with remaining sauce mixture
I saute the shrimp instead of grilling it and serve it as more like a stir fry.
