If you’re a fan of the citrusy scent and flavor of Earl Grey tea, you’ll love these buttery, delicious cookies to enjoy with your favorite cuppa!
Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon Earl Grey tea leaves (dried leaves)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon water
1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), at room temperature
Preheat oven to 375° F. Place all dry ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the tea becomes a fine powder. Add vanilla, water, and butter, and blend until the mixture becomes doughy. Place the dough on a piece of wax paper or parchment and roll it into a log until smooth. Chill for 30 minutes, then cut the log into 1/3 inch slices. Place the slices on baking sheets and bake until the edges are just brown, about 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks. Cool completely, and enjoy.
