Delicious & Easy Cornmeal Sugar Cookies

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for P.A.N. Cornmeal. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. #PANfan 

I love a good sugar cookie recipe – but hate when it takes forever to whip up! Luckily I found a new spin on them by making them with cornmeal – they turned out amazingly moist, flaky and addictive. Give these Delicious & Easy Cornmeal Sugar Cookies a try!

Note: this makes a smaller batch – about 16 or so regular sized cookies

So why should we use cornmeal in more of our everyday cooking? Its rich nutrients and versatility makes it a staple in countries all over the globe. P.A.N. Cornmeal itself has been around for years, but just recently been making its way into USA kitchen, after being the number one in South America. If it’s that popular around the world, perhaps we’re missing something?
