Try these delicious savoury snacks, perfect to enjoy with a drink over the festive period!
Rosemary is an energising tonic, useful to boost recovery after illness or periods of low energy. Just the smell of a fresh leaf can really lift your spirits. Even inhaling the fresh leaf from a garden or window box will stimulate mental energy and the tea taken internally will much extend this effect.
Rosemary has traditionally been used to aid digestion, including bloating after heavy meals, so the festive break could be the perfect time to look at how to use rosemary to maximise your enjoyment of any celebration. There really isn’t much in these delicious savoury shortbreads, but try adding fresh leaves to soups, stews and sauces to allow the oils to infuse, or make a fresh tea to enjoy – just add a sprig of rosemary to a teapot or cafetiere of hot water, leave for 15 minutes, and sweeten with honey if you wish.
These biscuits can be made ahead – you can freeze the roll of dough up to 1 month ahead, and then just slice as many as you need from the frozen roll. The cooking time will be the same.
