Ingredients
• 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
• 2 tablespoons Earl Grey tea leaves
• ½ cup powdered sugar
• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• ½ tsp salt

Glaze
• 1 cup powdered sugar
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions
• Blend the butter and earl grey tea leaves together and allow to sit at room temperature for at least 2 hours, longer is fine. If you are running short on time, this step can be skipped and the tea can be added with the powdered sugar. Just note that the flavour may not be as strong.
• Once the butter has finished setting. Preheat oven to 350­° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
• Cream the butter and tea mixture and powdered sugar in a large bowl or stand mixer.
• Add in the flour and salt. Continue to mix until a soft dough forms. The mix will be dry and crumbly at first but will come together.
• Roll dough into a long tube, about 2" in diameter.
• using a bread knife, gently slice into 1/4" thick rounds.
• Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for 12 to 15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown in colour.
• Once cooled, whisk together the glaze ingredients and dip or drizzle the cookies as desired and place on wax paper to set.
