Tea Cookies

Cookies Cookie Cookies !!
Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies.......yummy.
Super easy and so good with coffee or tea.
I got this recipe from Claire Robinson, the 5 ingredient babe on the Food Network. Tasty little morsels of yum.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons loose Earl Grey tea leaves, or the tea of your choice.
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature


In a food processor, pulse together the flour, tea, and salt, until the tea is just spotted throughout the flour. 

Add the confectioners' sugar, vanilla, and butter. Pulse together just until a dough is formed. 

Place dough on a sheet of plastic wrap, and roll into a log, about 2 1/2-inches in diameter. Tightly twist each end of wrap, and chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Slice the log into 1/3-inch thick disks. 

Place on parchment or silpat lined baking sheets, 

2 inches apart (2 probably needed depending on size of sheets). Bake until the edges are just brown, about 12 minutes. Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks and cool to room temperature.
