Ingredients

2
cups
all-purpose flour
1/2
cup
granulated sugar
1/2
cup
confectioners' sugar
2
tablespoons
Earl Grey tea leaves, from approximately 6 tea bags
1/2
teaspoon
salt
1
teaspoon
pure vanilla extract
1
cup
unsalted butter, cut into pieces

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Pulse together all the dry ingredients in a food processor until the tea leaves are pulverized. Add the vanilla, 1 teaspoon water, and the butter. Pulse together until a dough is formed.
  2. Divide the dough in half. Place each half on a sheet of plastic wrap and roll into a 12-inch log, about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
  3. Slice each log into disks, 1/3 inch thick. Place on parchment- or foil-lined baking sheets, 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake until the edges are just brown, about 12 minutes. Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks.
