It’s a new month which means a new FoodLove bloghop! Nothing says holidays like homemade cookies and while I have the traditional ones – like press cookies, biscotti – I make every year, I always like trying a few new recipes to see if they are worthy of next year’s baking rotation.
My Rosemary & Thyme Shortbread have become one of the holiday staples that I give as gifts and add to the party cookie tray. Adapted years ago from an Gourmet magazine, this cookie was one of my first ventures into using savory herbs in a dessert. Rosemary was the star ingredient in the original recipe but I added thyme for an extra herbal punch in flavor and appearance. And while they’re not the healthiest of offerings (they are cookies after all), I’ve tweaked the ingredients by cutting back on the butter (though still uses a whole stick) and adding some white whole wheat flour for extra fiber and texture.
These are the cookies that people will remember…and perhaps even request again next December.
