It took me a while to find this but here it is.  I’ve made this cookie several times but now I’ve finally perfected it.

The flavor is properly balanced and the texture, perfect.

It lightly crumbles into your mouth.

I can usually make 14 – 16 cookies with this recipe.  With only 2 tablespoons maple syrup as a sweetener.  I feel like I can just eat the whole batch and not feel guilty about it.

Pairs perfectly with an afternoon cup of tea.

If rosemary isn’t your thing, it’s optional.  You can simply omit it.

A definite must try.  You’ll be glad you did!
