Vegan Earl Grey Tea Cookies
I first had these cookies at a Prospect Park potluck and have been meaning to make them ever since. And now, gentle reader, for you I have.
Although not the most photogenic cookie, these are most delicious. You can't go wrong with a cookie that has tea.
Earl Grey Tea Cookies
2 c flour
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c powdered sugar
2 T earl grey tea- from a tea bag is better than loose tea. You want it ground fine.
1/2 t salt
1 t vanilla
1 t orange juice
3/4 c margarine, cut small (I use Earth Balance sticks)
1/2 t lemon zest
1/2 t orange zest
-Mix together the flour, sugar, powdered sugar, tea and salt.
-In a separate bowl cream the vanilla, orange juice, margarine and zests.
-Add the dry ingredients and combine.
-Divide the dough into 2 logs and wrap with wax paper. I do shorter and fatter logs
for a larger cookies.
-Refrigerate for a few hours, preferably overnight.
-Slice and bake for 9-13 minutes at 375.
-Cool before eating.
