If you’re looking for a unique, delicious cookie recipe, look no further than this lemon basil shortbread! It’s buttery, crisp, bright, and absolutely packed with flavor from freeze-dried basil and lemon zest. A delicious cookie for summer, or a fun addition to your holiday cookie repertoire.
To flavor these shortbread cookies, we use Litehouse® Freeze-Dried Basil and plenty of lemon zest. To evenly incorporate the flavor, we pulse the zest and basil with sugar, which flavors the sugar and makes it easy to add to both the cookie dough as well as the top of each cookie.
