To see Makabi & Sons cookies evoking locales from Oaxaca to Morocco and beyond, visit their website (listed in the back of this book).
Makabi & Sons scour the globe to findcookies that express both local traditions and universal appeal. For this delectable treat, they’re taking us to the kafeneia of Crete —or Kriti, as it’s known in Greece —where they employ aromatic rosemary and Maldon sea salt to create a savory, simple, but unforgettable shortbread butter cookie. Try it as an accompaniment to afternoon tea, a late night snack, or an elegant, uncomplicated dessert —we think it’s delicious with a bit of the Ancient Foods Organic Thyme Honey which, conveniently, you’ll also find in this edition. It’s the next best thing to a trip to the Aegean.
