Rosemary Biscuits

These biscuits are so simple in both ingredients and method; they are effortlessly delicious. They have all the satisfaction of a crumbly shortbread, but have the added bonus of a yummy flavour hit of rosemary.  If you have never tried rosemary in sweet baking before then you should definitely try these, you might become a convert like me. I find them perfect to munch on while enjoying a herbal tea.

  • 55g sugar
  • 115 butter, softened
  • 170g flour
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped fresh rosemary


Mix the sugar, butter and flour until combined. It is easiest to use your hands.

Knead in the rosemary until a nice smooth ball of dough is formed.

Let the dough rest in the fridge for 15-30 minutes.

Roll out the dough 5mm thick and cut out the biscuits. I like to use mini cookie cutters.

Set out on a greased or lined baking tray, leaving a small space between each.

Bake at 180 Celsius for 10-15 minutes until they start to go lightly golden.

Makes a small batch: approx 40 mini cookies, or approx 15 'regular' sized cookies.
