Rosemary? In a cookie? I can tell lots of you are making faces, but it’s so totally delicious combined with the freshness of the lemon, the sweetness of the sugar, and the richness of the butter.

These cookies make a great gift, because they’re a bit different and can be made in big batches without breaking the bank.
