Grits Cookies Recipe

You will need:

  • cooked grits1 cup of cooked grits
  • unsalted butter1/2 cup of unsalted butter, softened
  • sugar1 cup of sugar
  • egg1 large egg
  • vanilla extract1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • all-purpose flour1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • baking powder1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • salt1/4 teaspoon of salt


  1. First, preheat your oven to 350°F and prepare your baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper. This will prevent your cookies from sticking.
  2. Next, in a large bowl, cream together the softened unsalted butter and sugar until it becomes light and fluffy. This is an important step to ensure your cookies have a soft texture.
  3. Now, add the egg and vanilla extract to your butter mixture. Mix these ingredients well to incorporate them fully.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients: the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Make sure they're mixed well to ensure even distribution in your cookies.
  5. Gradually add your dry ingredients to the butter mixture. It's important to add them gradually to avoid overmixing, which can make your cookies tough. Mix just until the ingredients are combined.
  6. Now, fold in the cooked grits. This will give your cookies a unique texture and flavor. Be gentle when folding to keep your cookies tender.
  7. Drop your cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheet. This will give you evenly sized cookies.
  8. Bake your cookies for 12-15 minutes, or until they're golden brown. Keep a close eye on them to avoid overbaking.
  9. Finally, let your cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. This will make them easier to remove. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Cooling on a wire rack prevents the bottoms from becoming soggy.
