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
- Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.
- Remove 2 Tbs. zest and ¼ C. lemon juice from lemons.
- Beat sugar and butter with mixer on medium until fluffy. Beat in egg, minced rosemary, lemon juice and zest. Beat in flour mixture.
- 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.
- 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.
- Bake 8-10 minutes until the edges are light brown. Cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
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.
