Cherokee Cornmeal Cookies




I just had to share this recipe with you. My daughter needed to cook something Native American to go with her presentation at 4-H this week. She decided on a cookie recipe that came from an early 1820's cookbook.

They are so DELICIOUS!

Thankfully the ingredients were simple and already stocked in my cabinets.


I bet you have the ingredients too! Give these a try!



These taste like sugar cookies and vanilla wafers with a light cornmeal texture.
