Paste di meliga are a traditional cookie from Piemonte. Meliga is ancient corn flour from the region, which in dialect is called Melia, or Meira, from which these cookies take their name. The ingredients are simple: corn flour, butter, sugar, vanilla, and lemon zest. This version, a little softer and without butter, is a little lighter. Because of the addition of lemon juice, these Lemon Corn Cookies (Paste di meliga) by Alice Carbone Tench are tarter and lemony.
