  • 7 ingredients
  • 10 servings


cups water
1 1/2
teaspoons salt
1 1/2
cups yellow cornmeal
cup whipping cream
cup grated Parmesan cheese
teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
tablespoon olive oil


  1. 1 Grease 15x10x1-inch baking pan. In large saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil. While stirring water in a circular motion with wire whisk, add cornmeal in a slow steady stream, keeping water boiling continuously. Reduce heat to low; continue cooking, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick, about 5 to 15 minutes depending on type of cornmeal.
  2. 2 Add cream, cheese and Italian seasoning; mix well. Pour into greased pan. Cool 15 minutes. At this point, polenta can be covered and refrigerated until serving time.
  3. 3 To serve, heat oven to 400°F. With assorted star-shaped cookie cutters, cut polenta into stars. (Polenta scraps can be combined and re-rolled to cut additional stars.) Brush both sides of each star with oil; place on ungreased cookie sheets.
  4. 4 Bake at 400°F. for 10 to 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
