Yield: 12 medium or 6 large desserts
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Generous pinch of salt
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cornmeal

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour 12 muffin cups or six 6-ounce custard cups.
Mix together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
In mixer bowl, cream butter. Gradually beat in powdered sugar, scraping bowl as needed, until mixture is fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in dry ingredients and milk alternately, to blend thoroughly. Blend in cornmeal. Spoon batter into prepared cups.

Turn out onto rack to cool completely.
Beat cream and sugar to form soft peaks.
