OMG -Sookie Stackhouse's Blue Cornmeal Cookies with Peach Ice-Cream

Wow, Moogie and Pap out-did themselves with this

Sookie Stackhouse's Blue Cornmeal-Basil Cookies with Old-Fashioned Peach Ice-Cream

It's hot... hot... hot in Louisiana. And if any of you are reading Charlaine Harris's novel about the supernatural folks living among us. Then you know that it's absolutely steaming here in the deep south. But our Miss Sookie Stackhouse knows how to cool off after some wild shenanigans with, Vampire Bill, Were-tiger Quinn, and Vampire Erik.

Personally, I don't know where she finds the time. What with the revolving door in her bedroom and her full time job at Merlotte's Bar. But when the heat gets the better of her, she will head out to her kitchen and whip up this treat to help cool off on those long sultry summer nights.

Even if you don't have some sexy vampire in your life, heating up your loins. You can still enjoy this great recipe.

Ingredients for Cookies:
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal (I was out of the yellow and I used a gourmet blue cornmeal instead)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon grated fresh ginger ( I didn't have any so I just omitted it)
12 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
1 large egg
