Why I Love This Recipe

This cookie recipe uses olive oil for the fat!

It's a great cookie to bring to tea parties.

You can substitute just about whatever herb you'd like for the Thyme.

Ingredients You'll Need

* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 cup sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
* 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
* 3 tablespoons milk
* 1 large lemon, zested and juiced


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with Reynolds® Parchment Paper or silicone baking sheets.

Put the flour, sugar, baking soda, pepper, and thyme into a bowl and whisk together to combine. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, milk, lemon juice, and zest. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring with a wooden spoon until you form a nice smooth dough.

Roll heaping teaspoonfuls of the dough into balls. Place them about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake the cookies about 12 to 15 minutes, or until they are browned around the edges. Let the cookies cool for a few minutes and then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely.
