Here, we have broken down the steps to help you grab the process:

  • 2 cups Flour: Two cups of flour will be enough to prepare a couple of dozen cookies.
  • 2/3 cup Sugar: Sugar should be added according to your taste.

However, standard recipe demands you to add 2/3 cups for 2 cups of flour (you can also use brown sugar or stevia instead).

  • 2 teaspoons of FYSIS Rosemary.
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt.
  • 3/4 cup Butter: Use unsalted butter to mix the ingredients into a dough.
  • 3 tablespoons Honey: Honey adds to the flavor and texture of the cookies. It could be added according to taste but the standard is 3 tablespoons.

The process involves mixing the ingredients and baking them in the oven at 170 °C (325 °F) for almost 15 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 170 °C (325 °F).
  • Place all ingredients (flour, sugar, rosemary and salt) in a bowl and mix them.
  • Add butter to the mixture and mix it thoroughly. Use your hands for the purpose and mix until all the butter becomes part of the dough.
  • Add honey and mix it using a spoon.
  • Once all the ingredients are mixed in the bowl, knead to convert it into a dough.
  • After good kneading, let it cool down for 30 minutes. This helps the dough stiff a bit allowing you to shape and design the cookies more easily.
  • Sprinkle flour on a surface and roll small pieces of dough on it (if you don’t sprinkle flour then the dough will stick to the surface).
  • Cut the rolled dough into desired shapes using cutters.
  • Place the cuts on a cookie sheet (you don’t need to grease the sheet as cookies won’t stick to it).
  • Bake for 15 minutes and let the cookies cool.

Once cooled down, you can enjoy freshly baked, brown colored, delicious cookies.
