Serves: 27
  • 1/4 cup (50 grams) sugar
  • 1/4 cup (32 grams) powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups (192 grams) flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Earl Grey tea leaves*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon decorating sugar
  1. Using your stand mixer cream the butter with the sugar, powdered sugar and vanilla bean paste.
  2. Add in your egg and vanilla extract mixing until combined.
  3. In a small bowl measure out your flour, tea leaves, salt and baking powder.
  4. Add to your butter mixture until a soft dough forms.
  5. On a clean work surface roll out your dough into a log.
  6. Roll your dough in the decorating sugar and tightly wrap in plastic wrap.
  7. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  8. Slice your cookie dough 1/4" thick.
  9. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line your baking pan with a silpat or parchment paper.
  10. Bake for 6-8 minutes*
  11. Cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
  12. *I cut open a tea bag and just measured 1/2 teaspoon from there.
  13. * When baking be sure not too over bake - the bottoms will brown before the slides or top will.
