  1. I am so happy you share these recipes, Johanne. I hardly bake cookies, but some of these are too good to resist. Maybe I will try them once my life is calm down, which is after New Year. HAHAHA Nevertheless, these cookies look too scrumptious not to try. LOVE IT.

    • We do have cookies on the brain Nancy! In Pennsylvania we are experiencing very unseasonably warm weather and I am wanting to work in the garden rather than the kitchen!!! Don’t know how you get the Christmas spirit going in the South! Thankful to be participating in a cookie exchange so I can bring home a few more varieties. But I will make your lemon rosemary shortbreads, balmy weather or not!!!
