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.
Be sure to rotate the log a quarter turn after making each slice. This will help it maintain its shape. The parchment-wrapped dough can be placed in a resealable plastic bag and frozen for 3 months. The dough can be sliced while partially frozen, then baked for the same amount of time.
