A Cookie I Would Like You to Make

Rosemary* Butter Cookies

*Neat fact that I discovered thanks to Martha Stewart: Rosemary is the flavor/smell/herb of remembrance, love, loyalty, and friendship

1 cup of room temperature unsalted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg and 1 large egg white (beaten)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups of sifted all purpose flour
1 tablespoon finely chopped rosemary
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/2 cup fine sugar

Put butter and granulated sugar in a bowl and beat on medium speed until pale and fluffy (about two minutes). Mix in the whole egg and vanilla. Reduce the speed to low and add the flour, rosemary, and salt and mix until combined. Halve the dough; shape each half into a log. Place each log on a piece of parchment paper and roll up. The logs should be 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Place in the freezer for an hour. Pre-heat the oven to 375 F and brush each log with beaten egg white and roll in sugar. Cut into 1/4 in rounds and bake until edges are golden, 18-20 minutes.
