Recipe: Rosemary + Citrus Cookies

Finally, the third part of my “I love rosemary” extravaganza!  This is also the second dessert-type recipe I’ve made, and none of them have included any beef or lamb or pork or any meat at all! I’m not saying that it isn’t DELICIOUS on a fat slab of carcass, but what I am saying is that the versatility of rosemary as a spice cannot be denied, and should be used much more!

In every kitchen! In ALL THE KITCHENS! Link me to your rosemary recipes, because I wanna eat ’em!

And here are some cookies for you, for reading, for existing. Buy some rosemary next time you’re at the grocery store and use it in something and thank me!

PS — I also really love oranges. I know it’s so ~stereotypical~ of a girl growing up in Florida to love oranges to an extent, but I really love them. I love orange in ANYTHING, from smoothies to green beans. Seriously, it’s so good. So. Good.

Here are the other two parts of my rosemary recipe series!

Rosemary Rice Krispies Treats

Rosemary + Olive Oil Baked Fries



2 cups whole wheat flour

3/4 cup white flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 cup of softened butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

Orange zest of 1 medium orange (grate the outside of it, should make about 1 tbsp or more of orange zest!)

1 cup white sugar (keep 2 tbsp separate)

1 egg

1 tsp finely minced fresh rosemary



Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix together the dry ingredients, except for the sugar. (Including the rosemary!)

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and sugar (except the reserved tablespoons) until creamed and smooth. Add the egg, orange zest and vanilla, and beat until fully incorporated.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, making sure to mix them completely.

Roll the dough into 1/2 inch balls 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Press them down a bit and sprinkle the remaining sugar on the tops.

Bake for 8 – 10 minutes, or until lightly golden. Let them cool before eating!

* Guest starring my brick wall. Isn’t it cool? I painted it and on parts of it you can see where I smudged or messed up — This is because I got pneumonia from the paint fumes and was coughing so much I kept missing the bricks! It’s a personalized touch. ;D
