Rosemary Walnut Butter Cookies Recipe
So when I think of the herb rosemary, the first thing I think of as far as flavor pairings go it garlic. I will put those two together in anything; olive oil, bread, pasta, chicken, pork.. really, I just love them together.
So one day when I was scouring the internet for interesting new recipes (I do that a lot, mostly when I am hungry. I am a food masochist, I think); I came across a recipe for rosemary walnut butter cookies.
Wait.. what? Rosemary? Cookies? Okay, I gotta try this. So with a function coming up that I needed to provide some nibbles for, I decided these cookies were sufficiently fancy enough to make. I was a little skeptical at first. After all, rosemary, my most favorite herb of all time, was supposed to be put in savory dishes, not cookies!
I was actually pretty surprised at how they turned out. I wouldn’t exactly call them sweet, but they certainly aren’t savory either, sort of a balance between the two, leaving a tasty flavor explosion in your mouth. Yeah, I said it, flavor explosion… I should be in advertising.
