I had this at a party, last year before Christmas, and spent 2+ hours looking for it...finally found it at the Washington Times website; it is a Bev Bennett recipe, and is nice and different...may be served with recipe#347481, or is great stand alone!

    Amount of fresh rosemary was perfect. I used coarse sea salt and I'd reduce that a little. Excellent wine cookie.
  2. Disque
    Use a little less coarse sea salt. Otherwise, really good.

    Hard to not eat too many of these crispy savory cookies. Lol! Omitted sugar and used 2 teaspoons of fresh rosemary and for us think it was too much, would do 1 1/2 teaspoons next time. Cornmeal gives it a nice texture. Cannot imagine spreading something on as they are fragile. Did freeze leftovers and appreciate the note on reheating them from frozen state.

    Delicious! I made these for Thanksgiving and we all really enjoyed them. I left out all the sugar and added a half tsp of garlic powder. I used about 1 1/2 tsp of fresh rosemary, I could have used a little more but this way the flavor was subtle and didn't overpower the parmesan. I like that they held their shape and didn't spread too much. Thanks alli for another great recipe! Made for PRMRT

    This recipe is utterly scrumptious and potentially very dangerous for me. lol It is so quick and easy to make with absolutely delicious results. The shortbread looks beautiful (very fancy), has the perfect crumbly, melt in your mouth texture and a wonderful cheesy rosemary flavour. YUM!<br/>I used the lesser amount of sugar, a red wine infused cheese in place of parmesan and fresh rosemary (about 2 tbs, chopped). <br/>Ill certainly make this often again for myself and friends. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper, alli! :)<br/>Made and reviewed for Adopt A Tag January 2012.
