Ingredients

Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies:

  • ½ C all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon finely ground earl grey tea (2 tea bags)
  • 3 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • pinch of sea salt omit if using salted butter
  • 5 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon bergamot oil extract use culinary grade, not essential oil

Decoration:

  • 50 g dark chocolate melted

Instructions

Make the cookies:

  • Combine all the dry ingredients (flour, earl grey tea, powdered sugar, salt) into a food processor. Pulse a few times.
  • Add in the butter, vanilla extract and bergamot oil extract (if using).
  • Pulse a few times until a dough begins to form.
  • Dump the contents from the food processor onto a large piece of parchment paper.
  • Gather the dough with your hands and press to form a cylindrical log.
  • Wrap the log with plastic wrap and place into the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F/191°C.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge and use a sharp knife to slice into rounds, about 1 cm thickness.
  • Place the cut rounds flat onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake the cookies at 375°F/191°C for approximately 12 mins, until lightly golden around the edges.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Decorate with chocolate:

  • Add dark chocolate to a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Heat the chocolate in 20-second increments, and give it a stir. Repeat until all the chocolate has melted.
  • Dip the cookies in the melted chocolate, or use a spatula to coat the melted chocolate onto the cookie.
  • You can also drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookie if you like.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
