Earl Grey Cookies with Grapefruit Zest
(adapted from Martha Stewart)
2 T. earl grey tea, from tea bags (ground)
2 c. flour
1 c. butter (2 sticks), room temperature
1/2 c. confectioner’s sugar
1 T. grapefruit zest
Combine the tea and flour in a bowl. In your mixer bowl or another bowl, mix the butter, sugar, and grapefruit zest on medium until pale and fluffy. Turn the speed to low and add flour slowly until just combined. Separate the dough and roll each in a separate piece of parchment paper to form a log. You want the log to be about 1 1/2 in. thick. Twist the ends and freeze for at least an hour or until you are ready to use them. Once ready, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees, cut the logs into 1/4 in slices, and bake about 12-15 minutes. Cool, eat, and share!
