I love, love, looove earl grey shortbread cookies because they taste incredible, but require the simplest of ingredients— you probably have most if not all already in your pantry! The addition of earl grey tea leaves make the cookies taste (and look) extra fancy.

White chocolate always reminds me of Valentine’s Day. Not sure why, but probably has to do with how sweet, rich, and luxurious the taste is. Plus, it goes reaaalllyy well with the earl grey shortbread!

Put the cookies in little plastic baggies, tie with a ribbon or yarn, and attach a cute little note before delivering them! Or, you can just keep them all for yourself because they are just that good. No one has to know. 🙂

White Chocolate Dipped Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 earl grey teabags
  • 1 tspn vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tspn salt
  • 1/2-1 cup white chocolate chips (depends on how much you want!)
  • food colouring (optional)

Instructions

Shortbread Cookies

  1. Cream butter and powdered sugar together until light and fluffy.

  2. Add in flour, loose tea leaves from tea bags, salt, and vanilla extract. Mix until dough forms. It should be crumbly at first, but eventually come together. If it is still too dry, add a bit softened butter to get right consistency; if too wet, add a bit of flour.

  3. Roll dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and put in fridge for 30 minutes.

  4. On a wax paper, roll dough into 1/4 inch thickness and cut out desired shapes with cookies cutters. Place cut out dough 1 inch apart on a wax paper lined baking tray in the fridge for another 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 300°F.

  5. Bake cookies for 20 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden brown. Let cookies cool on the tray.

White Chocolate Coating

  1. Melt white chocolate chips over a double boiler. Take melted chocolate off the stove and if desired, add 1-2 drops of food colouring. Careful not too add too much or the chocolate might seize up!

  2. Dip cookies into chocolate and lay on wax paper to cool.

  3. Enjoy! 🙂
