      These are very nice! I had one right out of the oven and the rosemary was very subtle - almost untraceable - and the lemon was just perfect. Once cool, the rosemary is slightly stronger, but still subtle, and goes quite well with the lemon. I ended up with two 12"-long rolls, about 3/4" in diameter, which made 4 dozen cookies. I had to chill the dough for 30 minutes or so before I could divide and roll it as it was so sticky. The rolls then ended up chilling for another 3.5 hours before I had a chance to bake them, but the extra chill time didn't seem to have any negative effect. These were very different from the usual cookies I make and I'm very glad I tried them. Thanks so much for posting!

      the recipe doubles perfectly--so you can share --but they're so good you won't want to give them all away!

      Nice, delicate lemon flavor. You can definitely taste the rosemary, a half tsp is plenty for me!
