Rosemary Kissed Orange Thumbprint Cookies

Rosemary Kissed Orange Thumbprint Cookies Tuscano

I found this recipe in the April 2010 Better Homes and Garden Magazine and it was a $2500 winner in the Holiday Category and it was submitted by Mary Louise Lever from Rome Georgia.

I tried to find a link to the recipe on their site but nothing came up so I'll type below. With the Rosemary I got from the CSA last week I knew I had to try this cookie. They were very good!
