Sublime: The Lime Cornmeal Cookie from Amy's Bread, NYC

Today I'd like to tell you about the subtle but sublime pleasure that is the Lime Cornmeal Cookie from Amy's Bread in NYC.

This cookie isn't flashy in appearance--it's actually rather unassuming. It would be easy to pass it up for something more classic like chocolate chip or oatmeal, or for something sexier like the double chocolate pecan.

But if you do opt for it, you're in for a sweet reward.

The crumb is lightly coarse and gritty-textured from the cornmeal, but a healthy amount of butter somehow keeps it tender and cohesive (happily, it doesn't crumble apart like its cousin cornbread likes to), and the sugar and lime add sweet and tart hints that perhaps don't sing, but definitely hum, in a very pleasing way. 

A lightly sweet cookie like this is refreshing and hearty all at once--and the cornbread almost makes it feel healthy. At least healthy enough that I'd consider it a completely appropriate breakfast cookie.

Amy's Bread has three NYC locations; visit their website, amysbread.com, to find out more. If you're not in NYC, the recipe for this cookie can be found in the book The Sweeter Side of Amy's Bread: Cakes, Cookies, Bars, Pastries and More from New York City's Favorite Bakery.

These cookies sound grrrrreat, cookies that should be eaten in the morning with an ocean breeze and a chai tea latte. :)
Just peeped their menu too, & I'm curious about the Orange Butter cookies and the Lowfat Applesauce Doughnuts (b/c 'doughnut' + 'lowfat' confuses me).

Have you tried either of these?

I loooove these cookies, as well as their orange butter cookies. I used to live right across the street from an Amy's and now I live in Chicago. I guess I'll have to buy the cookbook so I can make these cookies for myself!

Have not had one of these on a trip to Amy's. Yet. Can't wait to make it happen on my next visit. From Seattle (Tacoma) originally and love when you post about great NYC finds here!

I used to work across the street from Amy's Bread located in downtown Manhattan..these and their chocolate cupcakes with white frosting were my favorite. I'm going to try to see if I can find the recipe for myself..the texture of these cookies alone were to die for. They go great with iced tea and lemon. :-)
