72 cookies 

Tea Used

Earl Grey Tea

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons loose Earl Grey tea
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces

Heat oven to 190°c or 170°c fan forced. Pulse together all the dry ingredients in a food processor until the tea leaves are pulverized. Add the vanilla, 2 tablespoons of water (adjust as needed), 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 30cm log, about 5cm in diameter. Wrap and chill for 30 minutes.

Slice each log into disks, 8mm thick. Place on parchment- or foil-lined baking sheets 5cm apart.

Bake until the edges are just brown, about 12 minutes. Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks.
