Genoise is a classic European sponge cake that relies on whipped eggs for volume. The cake is often used in petits fours and roulades; its texture is a perfect counterpoint to the crisp meringue layers in the Gingerbread Town-Square Cake.
These tasty and convenient Latin-American-style turnovers can be frozen for up to three months, individually wrapped in plastic and placed in resealable plastic bags. There's no need to thaw before baking, they can go right from the freezer to the oven.
Cornmeal gives these not-too-sweet cookies a crumbly texture and golden color. Keep an extra log in the freezer -- you can slice off and bake as many cookies as you want. This recipe is easily doubled or tripled.
