Rosemary Lime Cookies with Pistachios


Chef’s Notes: I’ve read recipes for cookies with sage or rosemary, and even though I was skeptical, I decided to create my own version…and I’m glad I did. The earthy spicy taste of rosemary plus the tangy sweetness of the lime plus the chewy texture of the pistachios creates a very yummy cookie. The cookies are most flavorful at least 24 hours after baking. (This recipe was submitted in the Taste of Home From The Herb Garden recipe contest.)
