T'is the season for Meyer Lemons! That delicious little hybrid of a mandarin and lemon that only stays with us for a couple of months!
I should have bought a lot more because there's so many things I want to make, but I'm starting with cookies. These aren't super sweet cookies. These are a combination of savory with just a touch of sweet. They're grown-up cookies.
I decided to use olive oil rather than butter to compliment the savory taste I was looking for. And I added just a bit of dried sage and a little more salt (not table salt) that is usually found in a sweet cookie. In order to get the savory and sweet together it's important not to use table salt, you need a salt of substance.

I wasn't looking for a sweet, cakey cookie and I found exactly what I was looking for!
