Perhaps my favorite cookie ever...

Normally, when people ask me which cookie is my favorite, I dodge the question.  That's sort of like asking a mother to name her favorite child.  But if I were forced to give an answer, the Rosemary Butter Cookies would probably win.  (Shh, don't tell the others!)  This also happens to be one of only a few cookies that have been in the lineup since the very first Cookie Party - it's a staple in my home, and a favorite among my friends.

These cookies are crisp, but dissolve in your mouth, and they have a sugar bark that ensures that every bite is just a touch sweeter from the moment you make contact with the cookie.  They're absolutely delicious, they keep for at least two weeks at room temperature without changing their texture, you can make the dough well ahead of time and stick it in the freezer until you need it, and maybe the best part about them is what gets left behind when the cookies are gone!  That rosemary-scented sugar bark tends to crumble a little as the cookies and the container get moved around.  I love to pour the crumbs into a tiny pinch bowl with a tight lid and keep it around - it's the perfect topping for vanilla ice cream!
