Earl Grey Tea Cookies
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 2 tablespoons earl grey tea leaves, from approximately 6 tea bags
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon water
- 1 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces
Preheat oven to 375°F
Pulse together all the dry ingredients in a food processor until the tea leaves are pulverized.
Add vanilla, water, and butter; pulse together until a dough is formed.
Divide the dough in half, placing each half on a sheet of plastic wrap.
Roll each half into a 12-inch log.
Wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
Slice each log into 1/3 inch thick pieces.
Place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper or foil, 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.
