    Lalaloula's Note:

    This very unusual, but super yummy recipe was the first one my mum, my sis and I made after several years of not making christmas cookies together. We all were a little sceptical at first due to the combination of sweet and savoury flavours, but the end result convinced us all! What a great, easy and very, very yummy cookie recipe! The original comes from the cookie spread 2009 of a leading German women's mag, called "Brigitte". I hope youll enjoy it as much as we did!

      Just wonderful! I made the rosemary butter for this recipe a week or so ago, but never got round to making the cookies, an I'm so sorry that I didn't make them for Christmas - they would have sure been the hit! These are a real sleeper recipe, Laloula! I used the zest of a whole organic lemon, and this was the first time that I've used spelt flour and organic sugar. Such lovely touches! I used a shortbread cutter to cut them. Do watch them carefully - they go from golden to brown quickly! Made for PRMR Tag.

      Loved it! I was a bit slipshod with details because I was just making it to satisfy a biscuit craving, but it still came out delicious. I added loads of lemon zest and next time I will leave the rosemary to infuse longer. Delicious!
