Rosemary Lemon Shortbread Cookies

13 Oct

I came across this recipe in People Magazine. I know it sounds crazy, but sometimes you can really get some good recipes from People Magazine.

Every once in a while, I try one out and see what happens.

This is a keeper!!!

It tastes so elegant and gourmet. I love how you can see the lemon and the rosemary in the dough.

All I had at the time were star cookie cutters (and xmas stuff but that wouldnt have been right!).

And apparently I didnt have many sprinkle options either 🙂

These cookies are SO good! They are a fabulous twist on plain sugar cookies or rollout cookies. Definitely recommend!!!

Rosemary Lemon Shortbread Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tblsp grated lemon zest
  • 1 tblsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups flour

Directions:

In a mixer bowl, beat butter and sugar on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add zest, rosemary, egg, vanilla, and salt and mix for 1 minute. Scrape down bowl. At low speed, add flour and mix just until combined; do not overmix.

Roll dough out between two large sheets of parchment paper to ¼ inch thickness. Chill dough for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Roll dough out on clean surface and cut out using your favorite cookie cutter. Place onto baking sheet. Top with sprinkles and bake for 16-18 minutes or until edges are golden.
