Sage Apricot Black Pepper Cornmeal Cookies
But I wanted to do something sweet with it, as I was talking about sage and apple in desserts and so I did some googling on sage cookies and found something on Lottie and Loof and adapted it and voila. These are pretty damn good. My friends said they're some of the best cookies I've made and I make a hell of a lot of cookies.
Recipe adapted from here
1 1/2 tbsp sage, finely chopped
1/2 cup dried apricots, finely chopped
1 tsp black pepper
113g (1 stick) butter, room temperature
1 cup icing sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup fine cornmeal
3/4 cup flour
Preheat oven to 180C.
Beat the butter with the sugar until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in the egg until well combined.
In a separate bowl, mix the salt, flour, baking powder and pepper. Then mix in the apricots and sage and tip everything into the butter mixture. Mix well.
Scoot out 1/2 tbsp bits and place on greased baking sheet, quite far apart (like an inch) because they will spread. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned.
