Sweet Corn Cookies
  • 14tablespoons unsalted organic butter
  • cups granulated sugar
  • 1cup fresh or frozen sweet corn kernels (if frozen, use 1¼ cups), thawed
  • ¼cup corn flour (Try Bob’s Red Mill)
  • cups gluten-free cup-for-cup baking flour (Try Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1)
  • 2ounces freeze-dried corn, ground to a powder (made from 1⅓ cups dried kernels)
  • ¾teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 egg plus 1 egg white
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown the butter. To do so, melt butter until foam appears on the surface, swirling skillet occasionally. The melted butter will turn golden brown, with dark solids on the bottom. Using a metal mesh strainer, strain butter to remove and discard solids, and wipe skillet clean. Return melted butter to skillet, and stir in sugar; set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a separate skillet over medium-high heat, roast corn kernels until browned slightly in places.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together corn flour, gluten-free baking flour, ground freeze-dried corn, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. In a mixing bowl, beat butter-and-sugar mixture on medium-high for 2–3 minutes. Add egg and egg white, and beat another 7 minutes. Fold in dry ingredients and roasted corn kernels until well combined.
  5. Scoop batter in heaping tablespoons onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, placing mounds 2 inches apart and flattening slightly. Place baking sheet in freezer for 5 minutes to firm batter before baking.
  6. Bake cookies for 15–20 minutes, until edges are a light golden brown. Remove from oven, and sprinkle immediately with coarse salt. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
