Coating the outsides of the dough with cornmeal or sanding sugar lends a lovely bit of crunch.

    These were great. I didn't do the egg wash, but simply rolled the logs in demara sugar, pressing down hard, and then sliced them. The sugar stuck nicely to the sides of the cookies. I also sprinkled them very lightly with more sugar and a little salt, prior to baking. They were a hit. Thanks so much for the recipe.

    This recipe has become a family favorite. It's a bit tedious but well worth the extra work, in my opinion!

    I don't know how these cookies don't have a 5-star rating. They're fantastic. Mine never look very neat, but they always taste great. Usually I make the dough into logs, refrigerate, and slice like the instructions say. Last time I just rolled the dough into little balls and squashed them onto the baking sheets. They looked better than my usual. Also, instead of coating the w[filtered] log in egg white and sugar, I brush the top of each cookie with egg white and sprinkle with granulated sugar (that's what I have on hand). It seems to be easier and stick better on top rather than on the edges of the cookies. Great mix of sweet with salty. I always get compliments.

    What a surprise these cookies are! I've never used rosemary in a cookie, but these are just fantastic! Everyone wanted the recipe...these are so good. Wonderful butter cookie flavor combined with the rosemary and the sweetness of the sugar - just a great combination!
