Polenta Citrus Sable Cookies

I am a very big fan of FoodWanderings and I tried several tasty recipes posted there. The last try is not only very easy, but addictively tasty. It was a bit beyond my imagination to prepare cookies with cornmeal, but there are a lot of food combinations that are not obvious for my cooking code. I did not change anything from the original recipe, except adding the zest from 2 oranges instead of 1.  

2 sticks (8oz) unsalted butter, room temperature
Zest from one organic orange
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
2 large egg yolks, room temperature
1 3/4 all purpose flour
1/4 cup polenta

There were produced around 30 nice cookies - the quantities are for 50 - that I tasted with one of the 3-4 big cups of coffees the day. 
The recipe can be prepared very fast, but you need more patience for the dough. You better prepare the dough late in the evening and keep in the the fridge overnight in order to have the cookies ready for a delicious breakfast. 

Bon Appetit! And thousand of thanks to Food Wanderings for the amazing recipes!
