Earl Grey Shortbread Recipe
Preheat oven to 350°F
Line baking sheet with parchment
Finely grind loose Earl Grey tea with a mortar and pestle and add to a large bowl with flour and salt. In a separate bowl, beat butter, icing sugar and vanilla until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture and mix until a dough ball forms. Roll out onto a floured surface, 1/4 inch thick. Cut into squares or use your favorite cookie cutters. Arrange on baking sheets 2 inches apart to allow for spreading as they bake.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and leave on the bake sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack. Enjoy!
