Scotch Rosemary Biscuit Cookies

A Forkable original recipe developed for The Gift of Goodness Butter Blog!

For scotch lovers, here’s an awesome, unique recipe which pairs the piney aromatic flavor of rosemary with the smokey tones of a nice peaty scotch in a delicious butter biscuit cookie.  A rich Wisconsin Parmesan cheese helps set off the sweet flavor with a nice salty taste.  Plus, they’re SUPER easy to make.  Lets get cookin.

Scotch Rosemary Biscuit Cookies
makes 3 dozen

  • 1 c. butter
  • 2 Tbs honey
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 c. heavy cream
  • 2 Tbs scotch (peaty and smokey)
  • 1 tsp rosemary chopped fine + 1 tsp chopped for garnish
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 c. roughly grated Wisconsin Parmesan

Using a stand or hand mixer, cream butter together with honey and sugar.  Blend in egg, cream and scotch.  Once nicely blended, add 1 tsp chopped rosemary.  Set aside.

In another bowl, mix together dry ingredients.  Add dry ingredients into wet ingredients to make a slightly sticky batter.  Roll batter into a log and wrap with cellophane.  Chill for 30-60 minutes.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Slice dough in 1/4” slices.  On a plate, mix granulated sugar with chopped rosemary.  Press cookies into sugar and chopped rosemary and then sprinkle a small amount of grated Parmesan on top.

Lay out on baking sheet about an inch apart.  I suggest using parchment paper or a silicon mat on your baking tray to help reduce risk of burning.  Bake cookies for 15 – 18 minutes until bottoms are lightly golden and cheese is caramelized.  Set out to cool on wire rack.  Store in air tight container.

Since these cookies are made with scotch, a cute idea for holiday wrapping is to give them in rock glasses, new or vintage.  Like you’re serving scotch in cookie form!  Awesome, right?  I served mine up on a vintage platter, wrapped in cellophane to keep the freshness in and tied up with a pretty, rosemary colored bow.  As a small added bonus, I wrapped mine with a mini bottle of scotch to go along with the cookies.  These cookies are super easy to prepare and make a great holiday gift. Drink up!
