I saw some interesting alternatives to this recipe when I read others’ comments and I am looking forward to trying them! For instance, adding some lavender to the cookie dough. I adore lavender and baking with it has dual wonders- the smell and taste! I encourage you to try these and let me know what you think!

London Fog Shortbread Cookies

1 cup butter

2/3 cup powdered sugar

1 3/4 cup flour, sifted

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 vanilla bean split and scraped or 1Tablespoon vanilla bean paste

2 Tablespoons Earl Grey Tea (about 3 tea bags)

Cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Add the vanilla, vanilla bean, and the tea. Add the flour and mix until the dough comes together. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Roll out the dough to a little less then 1/4″ on a well-floured surface. Cut out desired shapes. Place on parchment lined baking sheets. Chill the cut cookies for at least 20 minutes before baking. Bake the cookies for about 12 minutes or until the edges are just barely brown. Cool on wire racks.

Per mentioned on the website, I personally have not tried it, they were too good not to eat nearly all of them in one weekend… BUT… These cookies freeze well in an air tight container.
