Jake doesn't usually request things. He just eats what I make with rare exceptions. So, when he requested Earl Grey shortbread cookies to take for his guys' weekend, I happily obliged. These are quick and easy to make and travel well. If you're looking for a cookie to put on holiday trays or into Christmas packages, this is a tasty candidate. You can substitute for any kind of tea that you like.
Ingredients makes approximately 20 cookies
- 10 T butter
- 1/2 C organic granulated sugar
- 2 T loose leaf Earl Grey tea
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1-3/4 C flour
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Stir in tea leaves until well combined. Beat in the egg, then carefully fold in the flour.
Roll the dough into a long cylinder. Put the dough in parchment paper or plastic wrap and chill for about an hour, until the dough is firm enough to slice.
