Tea cookies are known for being buttery, rich and soft. They are the perfect cross between a chewy oatmeal cookie and a crisp shortbread cookie. While you can use any tea you prefer, Earl Grey is one of the best to use in this recipe, and our Earl Grey Vanilla adds an additional layer of vanilla flavor that accentuates the extract. Enjoy and make sure you have your favorite cup of tea ready!
