Are you making this? 
1/2 cup unsalted butter; (1 stick) at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
4 large egg yolks
4 teaspoons lemon zest; (zest of 2 lemons)
1 cup cake flour
1 cup masa harina

Original recipe makes 72



Preheat oven to 475 degrees (yes, really).

Beat butter until smooth, light and pale. Sift sugar over butter and beat until completely incorporated. Beat in egg yolks one at a time, mixing well between each. Mix in lemon zest.

Sift flour and cornmeal into batter and mix just until blended.

Scoop batter into a cookie press and press out onto an unlined cookie sheet. Bake 1 sheet at a time, 4-5 minutes or until lightly browned, but still light buttery yellow. Watch carefully as it can quickly go from perfect to over browned.

Okay, first of all, the only reason I chose this recipe is because I have a bag of masa harina that I have been trying for ~3 years to use up. Secondly, the reason I did not give these a higher rating is that my husband did not like them. I liked them but can see where they are a bit unusual. I do not quite understand why they need to be cooked at such a high temperature. The directions say 4 - 5 minutes but I think this would work from the top rack of the oven only. Otherwise, 3 1/2 will do.
