Mealie Meal Cookies
With no cookies in the supermarkets and children home on school holidays always wanting something to munch on you might find this recipe good and economical. Fill the cookie jar and keep the family happy! It is also ideal to make ahead and freeze for when you have little time - or are missing some of the ingredients. Keep a few logs in the freezer and you can have freshly baked cookies in minutes! 1 cup butter or margarine - 1/2 pound 1 cup sugar (white or brown) 2 egg yolks 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind 1 1/2 cups sifted plain flour 1 cup yellow mealie meal Cream butter or margarine and sugar, then add remaining ingredients and mix well. Shape into a log, about the same diameter as the size of the cookies you want and chill for an hour. Cut into slices and bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on a rack.
