Earl Grey Tea Flavored Shortbread Cookies
  • 1teaspoon loose teaor 1-2 Earl Grey teabags
  • 1stick soft unsalted butter
  • 1/4cup granulated Sugar
  • 3/4cup + 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1tablespoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • Powdered sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C/320°F (fan or convection oven 140°C/280°F). Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Grind the tea with a mortar and pestle. Mix the flour with the ground tea, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Stir half of the flour mixture into the butter-sugar mixture until smooth.
  4. Now, knead the remaining flour mixture into the dough.
  5. Roll out the dough to approximately 3/4-inch thick. Be gentle, because it will be a bit fragile.
  6. Either cut into 2-inch-long strips or use a cookie cutter to make some fancier shapes.
  7. Place on a baking tray and bake for about 20-25 minutes. They should not become too dark, and stay mostly light on top.
  8. Cool on a wire rack and seal in an airtight cookie jar. Enjoy with a hot cup of tea!
