Rosemary Shortbread (top) and Lemon Thyme Cookies, hot out of the oven and good enough to eat.


Makes 3 to 4 dozen

Fortunately, certain intrepid herbs can be snipped all year round, even under the snow. Thyme is one of those.

• 1/2 cup butter
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 1 1/3 cups flour
• 2 tablespoons freshly snipped lemon thyme

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Beat the ­butter with the sugar until fluffy, then add the flour and thyme. Roll the dough 1/4 inch thick and cut out shapes (we like stars).

3. Place the cookies on ungreased baking sheets and bake 10 minutes. Cool on racks.
