Oolong Tea Cookies


4 tablespoons butter
½ heaping cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon ground oolong tea
1 cup all-purpose flour
Confectioner’s sugar for rolling the dough

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  

Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl whip butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add 1 egg and vanilla.  Stir in flour and oolong tea until a very soft and moist cookie dough forms.

Pour about ½ cup of confectioner’s sugar in a small bowl.

Scoop out about a teaspoon amount of cookie dough and roll in confectioner’s sugar.  Place on prepared cookie sheets and flatten out with bottom of a glass.

Bake for about 8 minutes or until edges are lightly golden.  Transfer cookies to a cooling rack.

Serve with your favorite tea and enjoy!

Living the Gourmet is happy to welcome back Teavivre, a high-quality line of pure Chinese Tea.

We received a wonderful assortment of their organic Oolong teas, a clean and mildly sweet blend.  It has a natural sweetness that almost resembles honey.  The tea itself has a light golden color and has been a true delight to review.
