THYME SAVORY COOKIES
This recipe arrives a little bit late. Routines are coming back after Covid. In mi case I finished civil servant exams and went up North to Asturias and visiting my family while I enjoy the cold weather and avoid Madrid on July for some days, and the hot temperatures we are having.
Between bags and driving I published this recipe stop motion, as my first attempt with this technique that I hope to still improving.
Now I can finally publish this recipe that I hope you will love as much as I do.
This savory cookies with thyme and rosemary are that easy to make that I am think I won’t buy salted cookies again on the supermarket.
You choose if you want to combine them with tomato jam, they are good enough, but the sweet-savory contrast it’s amazing with salty cheeses as parmesan cheese. You have to taste this combination!
If you are one of that people that thinks about how food look and taste, the tomato jam has a beautiful color that makes these cookies taste and look even better. It’s important to add the jam just before serving to preserve the cookies crispy texture.
I added 30 g of olive oil sun-dried tomatoes that I chopped using part of the olive oil they have. If you don’t have olive oil sun dried tomatoes you can add 25-30 g of olive oil to the recipe.
This recipe is for two people, if you are baking more cookies just double the quantities.
