Tasty Tuesday - Earl Grey cookies

Posted by Claudia Moser on 6:48 AM in , ,
And now some nice yummy cookies for your afternoon tea, please tell me you will try them! The recipe I found via Pinterest, and I can vouch they are scrumptious!

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons loose Earl Grey tea
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces

Heat oven to 375° F. Pulse together all the dry ingredients in a food processor until the tea leaves are pulverized. Add the vanilla, 2 tablespoons of water (adjust if needed), and the butter. Pulse together until a dough is formed.
Divide the dough in half. Place each half on a sheet of plastic wrap and roll into a 12-inch log, about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
Slice each log into disks, 1/3 inch thick. Place on parchment- or foil-lined baking sheets, 2 inches apart.
Bake until the edges are just brown, about 12 minutes. Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks.
PREP Time 20 minutes
Makes 6 dozen cookies



Nom nom nom I am a sucker for anything with tea in it.

Did you make these? They look so good! Might have to try these for Monsieur as he really likes Earl Grey. Have a lovely week xo

I think the tea would make these cookies taste great.

Well, that's something different :-)

I impulsively licked my screen. Those look delicious.

These cookies look good. I've never thought of adding tea to cookies. Sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
