Sugar craving! Yes, I have them sometimes. It’s extremely rare, but it happened and these lemon rosemary cookies are simply delicious. If you know me, you know that I don’t really have a sweet tooth, I’m more of a salt and savoury kinda guy. But sometimes, a little sugar is the fix I need.

Most of the time, sugar cravings for me come with a lemon craving, anything sweet with lemon, I will happily devour. These cookies are the perfect fix for me, they are easy to make, and as a bonus, I use my favourite herb, rosemary.

You have seen my recipes with lemon and rosemary, from rice to chicken. To me, lemon and rosemary are a match made in food heaven. So why not combine them in a cookie! A sweet, lemony treat with a touch of savoury.

Rosemary is such a versatile herb. I grow my own (of course 🙂 ) and use it in many of my dishes. I just love the tea-like aroma and piney flavour. The rosemary is such a nice touch for these lemon cookies. Hope you will enjoy them as much as we did.
