Rosemary Thyme ShortbreadRosemary Thyme Shortbread

Nothing says holidays like selfmade cookies and whereas I’ve the normal ones – like press cookies, biscotti – I make yearly, I at all times like making an attempt a couple of new recipes to see if they’re worthy of subsequent 12 months’s baking rotation.

My Rosemary Thyme Shortbread have develop into one of many vacation staples that I give as presents and add to the social gathering cookie tray. Tailored years in the past from a Connoisseur journal, this cookie was one among my first ventures into utilizing savory herbs in a dessert. Rosemary was the star ingredient within the authentic recipe however I added thyme for an additional natural punch in taste and look. And whereas they’re not the healthiest of choices (they’re cookies in any case), I’ve tweaked the components by reducing again on the butter (although nonetheless makes use of an entire stick) and including some white entire wheat flour for additional fiber and texture.

These are the cookies that folks will keep in mind…and maybe even request once more subsequent December.
