At first I was a little skeptical about a savory cookie but these rosemary pine nut cookies are delicious! They are perfect for a breakfast treat, summer luncheon, BBQ – honestly everyone is going to love them. The best part you can use the herbs from your garden this summer! And they are so easy to make.
1/4 c pine nuts, toasted plus more for garnish
3-1/2tsp chopped rosemary
2-1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp salt
1-1/4 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 c sugar
2 Tbsp olive oil- the good stuff!
3 Tbsp milk- I used whole milk
1 large egg
1- Preheat oven to 325.
2- Using a food processor chop the rosemary. Add the pine nuts and pulse until coarse lay ground.
3- In a large bowl, whisk 2 cups of flour, baking soda, ginger and salt.
4- In an electric mixer with the paddle attachment combine the butter and sugar on high until pale and fluffy. (5 minutes) Mix in oil, reduce peed to low and add flour mixture. Add the milk and combine for about 2 minutes. Then add in the egg and remaining flour.
5- Prepare baking sheets with Parchment. Roll dough into 3/4 inch balls. Flatten with fingertips and add a pine nut or two to garnish.
6- Bake approx. 13 minutes and cool 10 minutes on pan before transferring to wire racks to cool.
Makes about 6 dozen.
