Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 TAZO® Egyptian Ruby Tea bags
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Mix in eggs.
  • Cut open tea bag and place tea leaves in a mortar. Using the pestle, crush tea leaves as finely as possible. Push through a fine mesh strainer if pieces are still too big.
  • In a separate medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and crushed tea leaves.
  • Add flour mixture to wet mixture and slowly mix, until just combined.
  • Divide dough into two and form into balls. Wrap each ball in plastic wrap and flatten with your hand or a rolling pin. Refrigerate for 1-3+ hours.
  • Lightly flour your surface. Take one of the wrapped flattened dough balls out of fridge and unwrap. Using a floured rolling pin, roll dough to about 1/4" thickness.
  • Using the cookie cutter of your choice, cut cookies and place on parchment paper-covered baking sheet.
  • Bake cookies at 375 degrees for 5-7 minutes, until starting to turn golden around edges.
  • Let rest for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
