How to make it

  • Place flour, butter, sage, vanilla, and egg yolk in a large bowl and begin mixing with a fork until no "dry" flour remains.
  • Dump flour mixture onto a lightly floured surface and knead until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. If there are still little balls of butter showing, that is fine.
  • Form dough into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for an hour.
  • When ready to make cookies, preheat oven to 375 degrees and remove dough from fridge.
  • Place dough ball on lightly floured surface and gently roll dough out to a large rectangle about 1/4" thick, rolling in only one direction.
  • Using a cookie cutter (or I used a juice glass), cut cookies from dough and place on an ungreased, non stick baking sheet.
  • Combine egg white and water and brush the top of each cookie with mixture. Sprinkle half of the cookies with white sugar and arrange pretty, flat sage leaves on the other half. Lightly brush over arranged sage leaves with more egg white mixture before baking.
  • Bake cookies 8 minutes. Allow to cool completely before serving.

    I have to say these are some of my favorite cookies that I make. They are also wonderful with lemon basil, thyme, and even rosemary or a combination of any of the three. I think of them as a "grown up" cookie because they are just lightly sweet with the fresh herb flavor ranging from mild to strong (which is why I do half and half sugar topped/herb topped). If you love fresh herbs and light buttery cookies I think you will enjoy these as much as I do. They definitely are different, but easy enough to make for a nice change.

    You could even skip the fresh sage leaf decorations and just do the entire batch with sugar, making the a little sweeter with less herb impact. There is just enough in the dough to have your friends guessing what in the world that delightful something they've never tasted in a cookie is.

    If I could rate my own cookies, I'd give them a 10 ;)

    Best wishes,
