Holly Williams | Lemon Basil Poppyseed Cookies
HOLLY WILLIAMS is a singer / songwriter who lives with her artist / musician husband Chris Coleman and their 2 daughters and son in Nashville, Tennessee. She has released three critically-acclaimed albums, and also owns two of Nashville’s best retail spots: H. Audrey and White’s Mercantile. Both stores show off her “exquisite taste”, as described by gal-pal and shopper Gwyneth Paltrow. One, H.Audrey, is arguably Nashville’s most beloved women’s clothing boutique, and the other, White’s Mercantile, is a completely curated shop stocked with Holly’s favorite items that she’s found while spending much of her life on the highway playing music to adoring fans. She describes White’s as a “general store for the modern-day tastemaker”. She may be from a famous family–country legend Hank Williams Jr. is her father–but don’t expect rhinestones and cowboy hats. Holly’s style embodies a modern-day chic simplicity fitted for shoppers around the globe.

lemon basil poppyseed cookies

holly williams recipes

These delectable cookies have recently become a very important recipe for me. You see, anytime my oldest labrador (who is the sweetest ever to humans and not very nice towards small animals), finds himself attacking a neighborhood dog (happened 3 times thus far), the lovely & innocent dog owners will find these on their doorstep immediately. My beloved Alfie was found on the side of the road,  I rescued him almost 6 years ago. The vet says there’s nothing we can do and it’s his instinct to protect himself coming from homelessness. That said, it’s very embarrassing when he finds the craziest ways to escape out of our yard and go on the prowl.

These cookies (along with multiple apology notes) are the perfect way to ask for forgiveness. Hopefully your pup doesn’t have these problems, but whatever you’re going through these are the perfect way to say “I’m sorry” to anyone! They are simple and beyond delicious, perfect with fresh basil in the summertime. Sometimes they never even make it to my oven because I can’t stop eating the dough. They are truly perfect. Enjoy!!
