Cookies. Let’s be honest they come in all shapes and sizes, flavors and colors! The joy of a cookie is you can eat it quick without noticing. Cake, you need a plate and same with pie which then requires whipped cream… Cookies you can just grab from the jar or bag and keep rolling-
Cookies. They even bring back memories. The memories of joy, when they are there and the memories of a couple days ago, of anger, when I noticed them all being gone…
Cookies. Say it with me people… cccooooookkkkiiiieeeesssss 🍪🍪🍪
So! On the topic of cookies I wanted to make one of my favorites The Orange Rosemary Tea Cookies. And instead of boring you with all of my yummy oohs and ahhs I’ll just tell you how to make them so you can feel all the love yourself.
Heeerrreee ya go!
- 1 cup butter softened
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 3 eggs yolks separated 2:1
- 2 teaspoons orange zest
- 2 Tablespoons fresh orange juice
- 1 spring fresh rosemary stemmed and finely minced about 1/2 a teaspoon
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- If needing to substitute all purpose for coconut do 1/3 cup coconut per whole cup all purpose flour.
- In a stand mixer with a flat beater cream together butter and sugar until it looks light and fluffy. After light and fluffy add in 2 egg yolks, orange zest, rosemary, orange juice, vanilla and salt till creamy.
- Begin to add in flour 1/2 cup at a time till combined.
- Divide dough in half and refrigerate for 45 minutes.
- Once chilled preheat oven to 350 degrees and prep baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Roll out each half of dough separately into 1/8 inch thickness and cut out with cookie cutters till all dough is used up.
- Lay cut cookies on parchment paper and create crisscrossing pattern on the tops with a fork.
- In a small bowl, combine remaining egg yolk and 1 teaspoon of water. Brush cookies with egg yolk mixture and put in the oven for 7 minutes. Rotate after 7 minutes and then put back into the oven for 7 minutes or until the edges start to turn golden brown.
- Serve with your favorite teas! From chamomile to lemon balm these cookies make any and every tea party more special.
- For traditional look use 2 inch round cookie cutter. For more fun or themed look use whatever kind of cutters you want! (Baking time may vary depending on size of cookies being cut. So keep an eye on them.)
