Cornbread Cookies:

Honey Buttercream:


  • Honey for drizzling on top (optional)


For the Cornbread Cookies:

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Line 2 large baking trays with parchment paper or silpat baking mats.
  • Add the butter, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, honey, vanilla, and butter flavor to a large bowl. Use a handheld electric beater to mix until well-combined. Beat in the egg. Add the flour, cornmeal, cornstarch, salt, baking powder, and baking soda, and beat just until combined.
  • Chill the dough for 10 minutes in the fridge.
  • Use a 1.5-tablespoon scoop to measure out the dough. Arrange it evenly on the 2 baking trays, and bake until the cookies are light golden and set on the outside, about 10 minutes, rotating the trays once halfway through.
  • Let the cookies cool to room temperature before topping with the buttercream, about 20 minutes.

For the Honey Buttercream:

  • When the cookies are cooled, make the buttercream. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and use a handheld electric mixer to beat until smooth and creamy.
  • Dollop about 1 tablespoon of buttercream on top of each cookie. If desired, drizzle a little honey on top.
  • Serve.
