London Fog cookies

Tea and cookies just seem to go hand in hand. And a crumbly, buttery shortbread style cookie is the best sort. So it was with great excitement I noticed recipes appearing a couple of years ago that had tea in them. But I've never actually made any of those recipes.

When my sister became a Your Inspiration at Home consultant recently, and I purchased half the catalogue hosted a party and got a pile of products, one of the products I chose was the London Fog tea leaves. I'd never even heard the term London Fog before, but as a long-time Earl Grey lover, I figured I couldn't go wrong with that choice. And a little bit of research showed me that London Fog is actually Earl Grey and vanilla. And my first Cate-invented cookie recipe was born.

250g butter, softened
2/3 cup icing sugar
1 1/3 cup plain flour
1.5tsp vanilla extract
2Tbs London Fog tea leaves, crushed

* cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy
* add vanilla and tea, mix well
* add flour, mix until combined
* wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 30min
* roll out dough, cut shapes, place on lined trays
* bake 180°C for 14min
** adjust time depending on size of cookies



  1. Well, I've never heard of London Fog tea! But your recipe looks easy and vanilla is one of my favourite tastes and scents, so I am sure this will be a winner.

  2. Not too sure about the idea of adding tea INTO the cookies?? But I'll happily drink tea while eating cookies. I'm sure they taste nice just not my cup of tea {see what I did there}.
