remember that one time we decided to move to seattle, paolo started culinary school, he started working at met market, then he quit met market, he started working at revel, he basically has no days off, i was taking the bus to and from work everyday, job searching, finally got a new job, oh, and we were planning a wedding? yeah. that time. let’s not ever do that again.
that is all.
back to the cookies… i made these to refill our cookie jar. a little more sophisticated than the chocolate chips cookies that are usually in there, but oh my, definitely a winner. the honey flavor is subtle but so right and the rosemary is fragrant but not overpowering. they got a little sprinkling of granulated vanilla sugar before baking which brought everything together. these may find themselves at home the cookie jar on a regular basis!
enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee or a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert.
a few notes:
- i used trader joe’s wild collected raw honey
- i decreased the amount of chopped rosemary to 1 1/2 tsp
- i sprinkled each cookie with a bit of vanilla bean infused granulated sugar (the fancy way of saying, i toss all of my used vanilla beans into my sugar jar)
- i had to bake each batch for about 18-20 mins
