Earl Grey Tea Cookies
October 11, 2006
A couple people asked me for the recipe for the Earl Grey tea cookies I included in my IMBB parcel for Dianna. I posted the recipe yesterday to the Kitchen at Apartment Therapy, so check it out there!
I made a couple varieties of these this week - one with herbal orange spice tea and one with a robust chai mix. I was not completely satisfied with either. Even though both were quite good, Earl Grey gives these a uniquely floral, delicate flavor that suits them perfectly. So if you experiment with these, please let me know how they turn out and what kinds of tea you try.
Be warned: they're incredibly addictive, in their buttery crispiness, so be careful and have some emergency backup taste-testers!

Faith! This sounds too delightful! I'm going to give it a shot this Friday. Any tips for high altitude (5300ft)? I usually like to bake using the convection bake. The oven's manual says to reduce 25F from normal baking temperature and since most baking recipes increase the temperature by 25F for high altitude, I just use the normal temperature for my convection oven. Does this make any sense?!

Thanks, Manisha! You know, I am so far from being at high altitude (is Orlando below sea level? Feels like it!) that I would hesitate to give any suggestions! But there's no leavening or eggs in this recipe, so I imagine that would make them less tricky...maybe??
I do like to slice these really thin and so sometimes they only need 8-9 minutes in the oven.
Hey, that pickle is still sitting outside. I just tasted it and it tastes AMAZING, but it's not soft enough yet, I think. I will post a picture here, eventually.

I love your thin and crispy version...delish!
