“I found the original recipe on the iVillage site when searching for savory cookies. I made a batch for some friends and they were really good, so I adapted it slightly to our taste and here it is. I think these would make a great accompaniment to chili or soup. The taste is salty, slightly spicy and the texture is coarse from the cornmeal. Maybe like a softer cracker. It's hard to describe, you gotta try it.”
