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 the 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!

NOTE: You can also make these yummy cookies using Gluten-Free Flour without affecting the taste.
