Rosemary Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adding rosemary to your chocolate chip cookies will change your life. At least I think so, as well as a few other individuals that sampled this creation− they were a big hit with my peers and Dustin's coworkers. Lately I've been obsessed with infusing herbs (basil and mint) into ice cream, and I also remembered thoroughly enjoying adding mint to my chocolate chip cookies a few summers ago, which gave them a nice, lightly herbaceous flavor. Branching out a little bit, I decided to add rosemary, which is a little bit more exotic than the other herbs I've previously experimented with. These cookies are classic and soft with a lovely hint of rosemary.


I know I promised we were going on a diet, but these cookies were made well before that. We're just a little behind with our posting. It's pretty torturous to look back now at all the desserts I made when I know they are off limits now!

Try adding rosemary to your cookies! You seriously don't know what you are missing!
