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



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.

3          Slice each log into disks, 1/3 inch thick. Place on parchment- or foil-lined baking sheets, 2 inches apart.

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