These are from a Martha Stewart magazine. I tried them this year for our Thanksgiving cookie plate and they were wonderful. Everyone except my DH loved them..he said, "Ugh, Rosemary is great in chicken, but it does not belong in cookies...chocolate, chocolate belongs in cookies"..bah, what does he know? They a lovely cookie, for a sophisticated palate, <BEG>, the rosemary is a slight after taste, not overpowering at all. I'm making them again for Christmas .
