Which tea to use to make cookies?
I used Earl Grey Strong tea with blue cornflowers to infuse these cookies, because it is my favorite for now and it looks beautiful in cookies. So you can add Your favorite black tea. For example, Spicy Chai tea will be great in this recipe, too!
As you noticed, we don’t like to use much sugar in my recipes, but if you are person, who adds sugar to your tea, you will likely add more sugar to this recipe. But trust us, you don’t need much sugar!
Any shape you like
Make these Earl Grey infused cookies any shape you like! I made Earl Grey cookies in classic round shape – classic tea, classic cookies. But you can use any cookie cutter, and if you don’t have one – cut them with a glass.
Storing tea infused cookies
Store the cookies in a closed container and they will last for a month. But for us, cooking journeyers, they didn’t last even two hours!
You can refrigerate this Earl Grey cookie dough for a couple days before baking. This recipe makes 12 cookies that disappear very fast! So maybe make a little more?… Especially if you have kids, they will probably eat all the cookies before you switch on your kettle!
Have a great tea time!
