A Cookie A Day: Fine Cooking's Rosemary and Pine Nut Cookies

There's something really lovely about the Italian tradition of pairing a glass of vin santo with a cookie or two to end a meal.

They are tender shortbread cookies accented with piney rosemary and toasted pine nuts, a combination of flavors that's Italian at heart. Not too sweet, these are the cookies that will match a glass of dessert wine just beautifully. More

The dish is finished with a sprinkle of sea salt and cracked black pepper, savory elements that tie together the sweet and tart notes of this gorgeous early fall sundae. More
