It’s fragrant, eye-catching, and on the novel side to say the least. In fact, it’s a sandwich cookie that features fresh chopped rosemary leaves, cornmeal, and a tomato jam filling, so it’s about as far from the ho-hum, been-there-done-that sort of sweet treat as you can get!
Though tomatoes are actually botanically fruits, they aren’t usually served as such, so you may find the jam quite a revelation. The tomato taste is mild and transformed to the point that it seems quite fruit-like. Plus, tomato jam has a glorious translucent color that makes the cookies look as good as they taste. (If I still haven't convinced you, but you want to try a somewhat unusual cookie, my chamomile petticoat tails shortbread or pumpkin drop cookies with cream cheese frosting might suit you better.)
The jam will keep for at least 6 months refrigerated.
