This cookie is not overly sweet and has the flavor of maple and oolong tea. These cookies are great on their own or with a warm drink. Careful though they do have caffeine45 m 7
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons loose maple cream oolong slightly crushed
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
1)In a food processor, pulse together the flour, tea, and salt, until the tea is just spotted throughout the flour.
If a food processor is not available you can do this by hand with a pastry cutter and crush the tea leaves by hand or in a mortar and pestle till it is in small pieces but not a powder.
2)Add the confectioners' sugar, vanilla, and butter. Pulse together just until a dough is formed.
3)Place dough on a sheet of plastic wrap, and roll into a log, about 2 1/2-inches in diameter. Tightly twist each end of wrap, and chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Or store in freezer in an airtight container.
4)Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
5)Slice the log into 1/3-inch thick disks. Place on parchment lined baking sheets, 2 inches apart.
6) Bake until the edges are just brown, about 12 minutes. Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks and cool to room temperature.
