Herbs and cookies don't normally go hand in hand, but they sure do in this sweet treat. They make for a lovely treat with tea or coffee and are a delightful surprise on any Christmas cookie tray.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a bowl stir together flour, sugar, and cornmeal. Using pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in sage. Add milk. Stir with fork to combine; form into ball. Knead until smooth; divide in half.
- On lightly floured surface, roll half the dough at a time to 14-inch thickness. Using 2-inch round cookie cutter, cut out dough.
- Place cutouts 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 10 minutes or until edges are firm and bottoms are very lightly browned. Transfer cookies to wire rack. Cool.
