Earl Grey Cookies
(makes about 24 cokies)
adapted from martha stewart
Whisk together flour, tea, and salt in a small bowl; set aside. Put butter, sugar, and zest in the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Reduce speed to low; slowly mix in flour mixture until just combined. Divide dough in half. Transfer each half to a piece of parchment paper; shape into logs. Roll in parchment to 1 1/4 inches in diameter, pressing a ruler along edge of parchment at each turn to narrow log and force out air. Transfer in parchment to paper-towel tubes; freeze 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut logs into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Space 1 inch apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until edges turn golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks.
** if you’re in Singapore, you can leave the butter out for 30mins and get softened butter. If you’re in a winter country like me, how the hell do you get softened butter/ how to cream butter?!
-> put the butter into the mixing bowl that you’ll be using later. Cube them (but not too small. like 1 2 inch cubes?) and put lukewarm water (warm to the touch) into the bowl. Leave it there for 5minutes and pour out the water. and TADAHHH you get softened butter!
