Thyme for Cookies

Today I made a batch of Lemon Thyme Cookies, one of my favorites... Lemon Thyme grows freely on my back patio, in fact it seems to enjoy popping up in the small creek stones. At a later time I will go to the growth patterns and habits of this historically signatificant herb, but for now just enjoy this fun cookie!

Lemon Thyme Cookies
1 cup buuter
1 1/2  cup sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp cream of tarter
1/2 tsp salt

  1. I think I've planted too much lemon thyme and didn't know what I was going to do with it - now I do! Can't wait to try this lovely recipe. Leigh
