Savory Cookie Recipes (that we’ve actually tried) – Part 1

I know we’ve all had the thought, “How can I get MORE cookies in my life?”

No? Just me?

Well, even if you don’t share my cookie passion, you have to admit that the idea of savory cookies piqued your interest. If you were just as intrigued as me but didn’t know where to start, look no further! These recipes are guaranteed to satisfy your cookie craving while giving your sweet tooth a rest.

Savory Cookie #1: Parmesan and Thyme Rosemary Cookies

Inspired by Adeline Borra’s recipe, I switched the thyme with rosemary because I have a rosemary plant in my yard (and didn’t want to go searching for fresh thyme). These cookies are crumbly and cheesy and AMAZING. A friend described them as tasting “like Cheezits, but legit.” Legit, indeed.

Savory Cookie #2: Olive Oil Cookies

You may notice a suspicious lack of photos accompanying this recipe. There’s a reason for that. They’re pretty darn ugly. Next time I might switch the red wine with white wine or just go all out and add some red food coloring. The cookies weren’t all that savory but they were still tasty – sort of like a sourdough pancake pretending to be a cookie. I just happened to have some Pinot Cherries from Friend in Cheeses Jam Co that went quiet well with these ugly cookies.

St. Patrick’s Day Treats!

A green cookie on St. Patrick’s Day is a must, especially when you get creative with how you make it. Grab a dozen Snickerdoodle and Lemon Drop cookies and smother them in some delicious cream cheese that is dyed green for the occasion. No words, it is just simply delicious!

If cream cheese isn’t enough to satisfy your cookie craving, ice cream is another great alternative to thematically spice up your cookie for St. Patrick’ Day. My favorite combination is taking two warm Dr. Midnight cookies and throwing in an enormous scoop of pistachio ice cream.

Tip: Warm your cookies in the microwave to get that savory texture!
