Corn Cookies are a type of sugar cookie that when baked in the springtime, celebrate nature and the sun’s energy. Maize represents vitality according to? the native corn clans of the high Sonoran Desert in Arizona (Navaho, Hopi and Yaqui tribes, et al.). Traditionally, you’ll find these cookies at Fiesta del Sol events in February and March. Bake yourself a batch and lounge in the shade with a handful of zesty lemon, spiced cinnamon and toasted corn cookies. Enjoy them for their crispy, satisfying nature. Native American Corn Cookies make special treats for the season. Your family will clamour for a second batch. Leave me your comments below.
Thanks to The Splendid Table and E. Barrie Kavasch for this recipe. You’ll enjoy her book Enduring Harvests: Native American Foods and Festivals for Every Season.
