Chocolate Rosemary Cookies

Chocolate Rosemary Cookies

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Beat the icing sugar and rosemary in a food processor until the sugar takes on a light green color and the mixture is finely ground.
  • Combine this aromatic sugar with the cocoa powder and flour.
  • Then sift the mixture so that you can remove any leftover bits of rosemary which may not have been finely ground.
  • In a mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the salt and gradually add the flour mixture.
  • Beat just to combine. Do not over beat or else the dough will stiffen too much.
  • Shape dough in to a ball and press in to a disc shape with your hands.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in freezer for 20-30 minutes.
  • When ready, dust with a very small amount of flour and roll out to a 3-4 mm sheet.
  • Cut out circles that are 4 cm in diameter with a cookie cutter or a glass that is the right size.
  • Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You will need 2-3 baking sheets for all the cookies.
  • These cookies don’t rise so you can place them quite close together.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack until they cool.

For the chocolate rosemary frosting

  • Combine the chocolate and olive oil in a bowl.
  • Cover with parchment paper and melt in the microwave on high. Begin by heating for 1 minute and then heating at 10 second intervals, stirring after each time. You can also melt the chocolate in a bain marie.
  • When ready, add the rosemary essential oil and stir.
  • WARNING! Rosemary essential oil has a very strong taste and you only need to add 2-3 drops at first. Taste the mixture and you can add a little more if needed.
  • Dip each cookie in to the chocolate and coat completely.
  • Transfer to a sheet of parchment and allow to cool completely so the chocolate can set.
  • Refrigerate if you want them to cool faster.
  • You can store them in the refrigerator for up to 1 week and in the freezer for up to 2 months.
  • I prefer to eat them straight out of the freezer!
