I recently attended a "Garden Dessert" class at our local library and the instructor demonstrated how to use various herbs in desserts. This was one of the desserts she made and these cookies were delish!
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease two baking sheets. In a bowl, whisk together butter, sugar, and egg until smooth. Sift in flour and baking soda and add apricots, sage, cornmeal, and salt; stirring until combined.
2Drop tablespoons of dough about 1 inch apart onto baking sheets and bake in batches in middle of oven 10 minutes or until pale golden. Cool cookies on sheets two minutes and transfer to rack. ENJOY!
3These cookies have a good presence of butter flavor in them and are delightful! You could possibly use even more dried apricots.
