Southern Belles

6 ounces yellow cornmeal
3 ounces baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
4 ounces sugar
4 ounces salted butter
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole milk


In a medium stockpot, heat vegetable oil to 350 degrees F for frying.

In a mixing bowl combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and sugar. Work butter into dry mixture until well incorporated.

Add extracts and milk together. Work milk mixture into butter mixture to form a stiff batter. Form into ball. Portion into finger size hush puppies. Deep-fry in hot oil until golden brown. Place festivals on paper toweling to absorb excess oil. Serve.

Quantity: 3 dozen
