Earl Grey Shortbread

earl-grey-shortbread

My brother’s girlfriend introduced me to the magic of earl grey shortbread some time ago, and it may have changed my life. The poor girl probably thinks I’m a crazy person as I pretty much ask her to make them for us at any and every family gathering. I’ve since recreated them myself, and though I’ve yet to master them like Sara does, I have to say this version is pretty darn good. Buttery, and crumbly, with a hint of floral notes – they make for a sophisticated addition to afternoon tea.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 2 Tbsp. loose Earl Grey tea leaves
  3. 1/2 tsp. salt
  4. 3/4 cup sugar
  5. 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  6. 1 cup butter, room temperature
Instructions
  1. Place flour, tea, salt and sugar in a food processor and pulse a few times. The tea should be spotted throughout the mixture.
  2. Add the vanilla and butter and pulse until dough begins to form.
  3. Gather the dough, place on a sheet of plastic wrap and roll until it's 2" or so in diameter. Twist the ends and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 375 F.
  5. Remove the chilled dough and slice it into 1/4" thick discs. Bake until edges are just beginning to brown, about 12 minutes.
  6. Let sit for 5 minutes, and then cool completely on wire racks
