I am a big fan of sugar cookies. They take some patience and some time to make so I oftentimes make them on holidays when I have the whole day at home. On Christmas Eve we spent the day in the kitchen making candy, cookies, and cakes. We deilvered a little package of sweets to neighbors and friends but we are still snacking on some cookies!
I like to use this Alton Brown recipe for my cookies, it makes a great cookie. I took some fresh rosemary and rolled it into the dough.
We made this simple little orange glaze that was a yummy pairing to the rosemary cookie.
2 cups powdered sugar
1 Tbsp fresh orange juice (or more as needed)
zest from 1 orange
pinch of salt
mix all ingredients and spoon over cooled cookies. I used the back of the spoon to smooth over each cookie. The glaze takes a day to harden so we just left them out overnight.
