Baked Sunday Mornings - Lime Tarragon Cookies w/White Chocolate Topping
You read the title correctly. Lime Tarragon Cookies w/White Chocolate Topping. While it seems kind of odd to add herbs to sweets, it actually works as long as the herb flavor doesn't overpower the other flavors. One of the biggest recipe surprises for me was another Baked recipe featuring herbs - Rosemary Apricot Squares so I was excited to try this one for Baked Sunday Mornings.
Basically a shortbread cookie with the juice and zest of a lime and tiny bit of minced tarragon, these were tasty. While warm, the anise flavor of the tarragon really came through and was a nice balance to the tartness of the lime but after a day or so both flavors were barely discernible. I left out the lime zest in the frosting mainly because I didn't get to frost them until over a day later and I was feeling kind of lazy.
Like I said these were good and I love the pop-a-whole-one-in-your-mouth size. Please visit Baked Sunday Mornings for the recipe and to see what the other bakers thought of this one!
