Due to previously mentioned circumstances, Valentimes 2011 was a little...understated. Last year, we were all about the pink. But this year, YJDKIY has moved on to red.
Whole Wheat Lemon-Rosemary Thumbprint Cookies
1 c whole wheat flour (germ removed)
1/2 c white flour
2/3 c sugar
1 egg/egg beater
1 stick softened organic butter
1 t chopped fresh rosemary (sorry, this doesn't work with dried)
1 t lemon zest
1t vanilla extract
1/4 t baking soda
1/8 t salt
Mix softened butter and sugar. Fold in rosemary and lemon zest (plus a squirt of lemon juice), add egg, vanilla and mix well. Mix in the flour, baking soda and salt just until dough forms. Form into 3/4" balls and choose your finishing touch:
1. flaten slightly and coat each side with a mixture of granulated (raw) sugar and lemon zest OR
2. using your finger, make a heart shape and fill with jam (recommend raspberry, but lemon could be good!)
Bake 8-10 minutes at 350.
