    What an original recipe!! I love sage flavor in savory dishes but never tried it with sweets... Will make for Christmas cookie tray. Thanks for the recipe and your comments on making yours. Best regards.

    These sound lovely! My sage just got all snowed on, but it is one tough plant and I have a feeling I still have some nice sage underneath all of the snow and ice. What a nice addition to a cookie tray!
