Or is a savory cookie really just a biscuit? Would a cookie--an herby one--by any other name taste sweet? Talk about questions for the ages.
I've had savory cookies on the brain for a while, and the flavors have always been the same: parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Yes. You guessed it..."The Scarborough Fair" cookie.
I'd replace half of the butter with olive oil and all of the sugar with ground Parmesan. I'd cream together the butter, olive oil, and cheese. Then I'd add a beaten egg--no need for vanilla this time!--and mix. The herbs would be dried, and I'd go light on the rosemary because...well...I'm not a huge rosemary fan.
Here's a clip of Simon and Garfunkel (and some other dude) singing the song that inspired this cookie.
