A fellow church members brought these delightfully different cookies last Sunday for coffee hour after service. She advised it came from the Feb 1997 issue of Gourmet magazine. They are pretty on a plate and delicious on yur taste buds! A very nice change from the usual cookie! If this recipe interests you, please check out my Upside-Down Berry Cornmeal Cake .

What an excellent cookie! I used erythritol in place of the sugar and gluten free flour, and they turend out incredible! The sage makes a wonderful flavour and goes so well with the dried apricots. Thanks for sharing!

Very unusual and delicious! I prepared these for the school art gala as they looked "gourmet" and something for adults. They went over very well with a few requests for the recipe. It was especially fun to use the fresh sage in my garden. Thanks nanpie.
