Lemon, White Chocolate and Basil Cookies

A friend of mine on facebook mentioned these cookies recently ~
They sounded so interesting; I had lemons on hand, white chocolate 
in the pantry, and  it's basil season here so I didn't really need an excuse. 
I felt compelled to mix up a batch! :)

They are very good; nice and lemony and the basil
adds a nice little background flavor of not-quite-mint.

If you're looking for a cookie that is a little different, I
think you might like these. After baking they freeze
very well, too. They are fabulous with hot tea, ice tea
or milk.

Many thanks to Karen L. on facebook, and
Mia at Mia's Domain who developed the recipe!

photos as well.

If you'd like a copy of Mia's cookie recipe you can

Thank you again Mia. :)

Have a wonderful day everyone, and thank you
for stopping by!

  1. These are beautiful cookies. I love the flavor combination. The only ingredient I don't have on hand is white chocolate. I better go get some soon so I can make a batch this weekend. Can't wait!

  2. Mari, when it has a lemon, I love it! Beautiful, and very cute... :)

  3. They are as cute as a button:) Buttons..I bet they taste just as good as they look..Love the little pansy face too.
    Isn't it fun making things that turn out as prettily as these?
    I just just put lemon verbena in a glass water bottle because I love the flavor of lemon so much..
    Have a lovely weekend Mary~

  4. I'm a lemon love from way back, so I can't pass up a unique lemon cookie like this!

  5. When I used to have an antique shop, I had an herb garden right outside the door. I used to make these cookies and give them out to customers. They are excellent tea cookies.

  6. These cookies would put a smile on anyone's face. What a great treat this would be to have with a friend over tea.


Thank you for your comments, friends ~ they make my day!
