Happy Christmas in JULY!
These rosemary chocolate chip cookies are full of delicious flavor!
It’s Christmas in July… I’m not crazy but wanted to share these fun cookies with you and today seemed like the best day to do it.
They are filled with chocolate, all different types, and are full of fresh rosemary aroma and flavor. I topped them with sea salt flakes which brings the flavors together nicely.
I don’t just wait until December rolls around to make these.
These cookies have a nice crispy edge, chewy center, and the variety of chocolate which puts them in the over the top delicious category!
Really soft, warm, or melted butter will result in flatter, greasier cookies.
If you don’t mix the butter and sugars together well until creamy the result will be greasier cookies.
These cookies are full of all the warm fuzzy feelings you’ll want all winter long and in the summer, they are a reminder that great flavors should be enjoyed all year long!
These cookies are just one more reason to have a rosemary plant. Did you know all rosemary plants are edible, they grow well where I live in pots or I’m the ground They get tiny purple flowers in the spring, and you can cut and use the rosemary all year long, depending on how cold the winters get. Luckily they sell small rosemary plants you can keep in the kitchen that last a while if you have a green thumb.
I have a couple of rosemary plants and I just love using it in recipes…
- Rosemary Candied Walnuts
- Garlic Rosemary Skillet Potatoes
- Rosemary Garlic Potato Salad
- Rosemary Garlic Chickpeas
- Slow Cooker Chicken with Potatoes in Wine Sauce
- Pork Chops in Wine Sauce
