I found this recipe online , it’s actually called Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies. I love shortbread cookies , but it gets boring if it’s only butter and nothing else . So this recipe calls to use loose leaves tea . And i happened to be Earl Grey’s biggest fan . I love earl tea , although lately i have been drinking more coffee , but i am more a tea drinker , and earl grey is on the top of my list . So i thought , this cookie might not be too bad . They’re easy to make , as long as you have food processor , or else you’ll have a little problem with the loose tea leaves . The blade in the food processor helps to chop up the tea leaves into very small , almost like tiny speck on the cookies .
2 cups of flour
3 tbsp. of loose tea leaves , earl grey
3/4 cup of powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. of salt
1 tsp. vanilla
2 sticks of butter , unsalted , room temperature
1. In a food processor , pulse flour , salt and tea leaves , until the tea leaves become very small ( notice like tiny specks all over the flour )
2. Then add butter , vanilla , and powdered sugar . Pulse until they come together . Then roll into log and wrap with plastic wrap .
3. Chill for about an hour in the fridge . Then take it out , preheat oven to 375 F . Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper , and slice the log into 24 equal slices .
4. Bake for 12 minutes or so . Let cool before removing them .
