  1. Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until creamy and smooth, and stir in the egg until well incorporated. Stir in the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, rosemary, and baking powder until well blended. Cut the dough into 2 equal-sized pieces, and shape each piece into a log about 1 1/4-inch in diameter. Wrap the logs in plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 2 hours, or place in freezer for about 1 hour.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Cut the logs of dough into thin slices, 1/8 to 1/4-inch thick. Place the slices on the prepared baking sheets, and bake in the preheated oven until the cookies are set and the edges turn golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool for 1 minute on baking sheets before removing to wire racks to finish cooling.

The only thing I would change about this recipe is cutting the amount of sugar down to 1/2 C. They were really good but so sweet they made my teeth cry! Also, i would put the slices back in the...

These bake up beautifully! I have now made 2 batches and have a request for a 3rd batch before next weekend. I used dry rosemary, which I ground until almost a powder so there are no hard spik...

Very tastey little cookie! I love it! Thanks.

Okay, I'm not sure why I always think I can slice cookies bc I clearly can't. Every time I try a sliced cookie recipe, the slices always end up looking like little malformed blocks of dough, so...

Rosemary is one of my favorite herbs. I have a plant growing in my kitchen and couldn't wait to try this recipe. These are wonderful! They're light, crispy, and delicious. I think I expected a m...

What an interesting cookie. Followed the recipe as written and thought it was good. You really have to have tea or coffee with this cookie. One of my daughters took a bite and wouldn't have a...

Excellent cokies! I love rosemary so I had to try this. Easy to make but I only got 30 cokies not 60 like the recipe states, but maybe is because I like my cookies on the thick side they would h...
