Foodie Friday: Lemon Rosemary Cookies


I haven’t posted any sweets lately even though I have been baking like a fiend so I decided to post this recipe. Both my boyfriend and my coworkers thoroughly enjoy these cookies and I hope you do to:


  • 3 C. Flour
  • ½ Tsp. Baking Soda
  • ½ Tsp. Salt
  • 2 Lemons
  • 1 ½ C. Granulated Sugar
  • ¾ C. Softened Butter
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Tbs. Fresh Rosemary


  1. Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Remove 2 Tbs. zest and ¼ C. lemon juice from lemons.
  3. Beat sugar and butter with mixer on medium until fluffy. Beat in egg, minced rosemary, lemon juice and zest. Beat in flour mixture.
  4. Divide dough into four portions. Roll each into a six inch cylinder. Wrap each portion in plastic wrap or wax paper. Chill dough until firm enough to slice.
  5. Preheat oven to 350℉. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Slice dough into ¼ inch slices with a serrated knife. Place slices ½ apart on cookie sheet.
  6. Bake 8-10 minutes until the edges are light brown. Cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired. img_2488

These cookies are great because they are soft and not overly sweet. The rosemary adds a nice hint of herbal flavor without being overpowering. If you end up making these cookies please let me know how they turned out. Have a great Friday.img_2494
