    Recipe Summary
    Difficulty: Easy
    Prep Time: 20 minutes
    Inactive Prep Time: 20 minutes
    Cook Time: 30 minutes
    Yield: about 4 dozen cookies

    1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
    1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
    1 large egg yolk
    6 tablespoons heavy cream
    1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup finely grated pecorino
    1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan
    1 tablespoon sugar
    2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary leaves
    1 teaspoons fine salt
    Pinch freshly ground nutmeg
    Special Equipment: Cookie Press

    Bring all ingredients to room temperature.

    Beat the butter and lemon zest with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth, about 30 seconds. Slowly beat in the egg yolk and cream.

    Whisk the flour, pecorino, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan, sugar, rosemary, salt, and nutmeg together in a bowl. Gradually add the flour mixture into the butter mixture while mixing slowly. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, then beat on medium speed to make a slightly sticky dough.
    Fill the cookie press with the dough. Assemble the press with the desired disk shape (see cook's note), and press cookies onto ungreased baking sheets leaving about 1-inch between cookies. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan and refrigerate cookies for 20 minutes.

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
    Bake cookies, rotating pans half ways through, until golden, the cheese browns a bit, and the cookies smell nutty, about 20 to 25 minutes.

    Briefly cool the cookies on the baking sheets, then transfer to racks to cool. Serve or store in a tightly sealed container for up to 1 month.

    Cook's Notes: These freeze beautifully. Press the cookies out into desired shapes on cookie sheets and freeze. Transfer frozen cookies to a plastic bag, seal, and keep frozen for up to 1 month. When ready to bake, lay out frozen cookies on cookie trays and bake from frozen for 25 minutes.

    Oh thank you. I really like the savory things like this. Would probably us basil instead of the rosemary!

    I am so very glad to have this recipe! About 2 weeks ago, I bought two little rosemary bushes and put them in a decorative planter box in my dining area. Your savory cookie-cracker-things sound delicious, and would be wonderful to serve with a glass of sherry. I think, though, that I'll form the dough into a roll, refrigerate it, and then simply slice before baking. Thank you!!!!!

    Recipegranny,
    I agree with you on both counts -- the sherry, and the slice-and-bake option. I don't see why you have to dirty your cookie press for these unless you want to!

    I just saw this recipe too. It sounds good. I bought a spritzer (?) last year and still haven't used it.
    Thanks for posting this.

    Sounds good...I think I will try the slice and bake option, since I don't have a cookie press.

    Any of you who slice and bake it, please return here and tell us if it works or not! Thank you!

    I have a cookie press - but the slice and bake sounds great to me. So easy - and handy to have on hand. Also - just give them the roll! Great gift - and saves you some steps!LOL
    If I make it - I'll try it both ways!
