Rosemary Butter Cookies

1 cup butter, room temperature

¾ cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2½ cups flour

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

Zest from 1 lemon

1 teaspoon salt

½ cup brown sugar for rolling

Instructions: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Cream the butter and sugar on high speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla. Beat well.

Add the flour, rosemary, lemon juice, zest and salt. Mix well.

Divide the dough in half and roll into a log about 11/2 inches in diameter, wrap in parchment and refrigerate for a few hours. (You can place the dough in the freezer for 1 hour if you're in a hurry.) Unwrap, roll the log in the brown sugar, slice into ½-inch disks and bake on parchment for about 20 minutes

These sound wonderful.
I was planning on making a Greek style chicken and was looking for a dessert that would go well.  I marinate the chicken in olive oil, lemon and rosemary. This sounds like a match made in heaven.

Yes, Nellie, these sound wonderfully refreshing, and another good use for my rosemary plant. I also have learned to not skip adding lemon zest when a recipe calls for it. It adds an extra lemony twist. Thanks for the recipe, Nellie!
