The rosemary in my garden is always overflowing. I can’t make enough recipes to use it all up. I either end up giving some away or storing some in the freezer. I’ve never had Rosemary Butter Cookies before but since I have so much rosemary on hand I figured I would give it a shot.

The end result is a delicious butter cookie with a crunchy sweet side and a subtle taste of fresh rosemary. Personally I don’t want the rosemary to overpower these cookies but feel free to experiment and make it your own.

This cookie recipe calls for some Coarse Sugar. It may also be called Diamond Sugar or Sanding Sugar. This particular type of sugar will not melt at high heat. Make sure you use the right stuff!

    Who would have thought that by adding Rosemary to a cookie recipe would turn out to this delicious cookie. I just love rosemary so figured I would try this recipe. I made them to give as gifts for friends at Christmas and everyone enjoyed them. I have made them a second time and they are just as good as the first time. These cookies are a keeper.
