Set these simple cookies out with after-dinner coffee and tea and they’ll disappear in no time!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons Earl Grey tea leaves, from approximately 6 tea bags
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces
How to Make It
Heat oven to 375° F. Pulse together all the dry ingredients in a food processor until the tea leaves are pulverized.
Add the vanilla, 1 teaspoon water, 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.
Boy, if you like Earl Grey tea, make these immediately! *grin* They could do with a teensy bit less salt, but other than that... I used tea that was already pretty crushed up, so I just mixed the ingredients in a mixer as per usual.
I'd bet they'd work just as well with other flavors of tea, too.
