Earl Grey Cookies

Terence gave us Earl Grey Tea when he came back from london. was wondering what to do with them. saw an earl grey cookie recipe and decided that thats what i shall make! ((:

Earl Grey Cookies

(makes about 24 cokies)
adapted from martha stewart


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons finely ground Earl Grey tea leaves, (from about 8 bags)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 (8 ounce) sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
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!
