Start with creaming the  butter with sugar, add egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each egg. At the end add the lemon zest.

 In a separate bowl, sift the flour and add chopped rosemary. Incorporate  the dry mixture and the milk in the bowl with the butter and beat until the ingredients form a homogeneous mixture.

Stop the mixer and finish mixing the dough with your hands. If your mixture is too dry, add 1 or 2 additional spoons milk. Knead a little bid. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 10 minutes.

 

 

On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough to about 6 mm thick. Cut out the cookies with your desired cookie cutters and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for 10 minutes before baking. 

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until just golden brown around the edges.

Leave on a site to cool down. If you wish you can use appricot jam to stick two together and sift with powder sugar.

 

 

Enjoy!
