I followed the recipe exactly. The first batch came out flat and burned. I added a heaping 1/3 cup of flour to the remaining dough and baked the cookies for 9 minutes. They tasted fine. I used fresh rosemary and it was definitely a unique taste. These might be a novelty cookie for the rosemary flavor but not one I'd make again.
Cookiedog these big, soft & tender cookies are the bomb! They taste like honey and spices...wonderful just wonderful, sweet and spicy. My dh never tasted the rosemary in the cookies at all...he loved them so much he didn't want to share them...He even took the rest to work with him today...I used dried rosemary and crushed it into powder with my motar and pestle. Instead of orange zest I used some of my candied orange peel....The spice mix used in this cookie was absolutely perfect. I'll be putting these babies on my cookie trays this year....when my guests arrive I want them to smell the delicious aroma that these cookies impart. My house smelled just incredible...Thanks so much for sharing.
I enjoyed these cookies,warming from the honey and the spices. refreshing from the lemon. And as for the fresh rosemary right from the garden is wonderful I also added a touch of dried lavender from the garden. I enjoy the 2 together! Thanks for a comforting treat!
I'm just in love with these cookies! I made a batch to take to work along with some chai mix, but I ate half of them myself! Everyone at work thought they were outstanding. I love the way the flavors hit you in layers--first the rosemary, then the lemon, then a slight honey taste. I have a huge rosemary bush in my yard, so I'll be making these often. Next time I'll try them with orange zest.
These cookies have a great texture and a lovely light rosemary flavor, these would make a great addition to any holiday cookie platter, and I plan on adding them onto mine this year, great recipe cookiedog!...Kitten:)
