Earl Grey Tea Cookies


Warning alert: Copyright © Anncoo Journal ~ Please do not copy my pictures and pages as yours.  

My friend C sent me a Chinese cookbook 新手餅干教科书when she was in Taiwan for holidays few months ago. There are many easy and interesting recipes in this book and I've already tried a few of them. When Angel of Cook.Bake.Love sent me some Earl Grey Tea during Christmas, I suddenly remember there is an Earl Grey Tea Cookies recipe in this book too. I knew I needed to try it out! These cookies are so crispy, fragrant and delicious that tastes sooo good and its didn't last long in our house. Going to bake another batch next week as Chinese New Year is exactly two weeks from now.



Thank you friends! 朋友!谢谢你们送上的礼物!



Earl Grey Tea Cookies


     Ingredients:
     150g Butter, softened
     100g Icing sugar
     1 Egg yolk
     60g Ground almond
     200g Plain flour
     50g Fresh milk
     2 Earl grey tea bag




  • Method:
  • Heat up fresh milk (not boiled and off heat), add Earl Grey tea leaves in it. Cover and leave to cool then run Earl Grey tea through a sieve and set aside (keep the tea leaves).
  • Beat butter and icing sugar till light and fluffy. Add in egg yolk and mix well.
  • Slowly add in Earl Grey tea and mix till combined (add one to two tablespoon of plain flour into it if batter is too wet).
  • Add in the remaining tea leaves and mix well.
  • Mix plain flour and ground almond together and pour into the batter in two batches and mix well to a soft dough with a rubber spatula.
  • Put soft dough into a plastic bag, press flat and place soft dough in refrigerator for 30 minutes or freezer for 10 minutes.
  • Take out dough from refrigerator and knead it to a soft dough again (do not over knead) and fill into piping bag fitted with a star tip half full. Pipe out cookies onto the prepared trays (you can use cookie press if you prefer).
  • Bake at preheated oven 180C for about 13-15 minutes until the cookies are lightly golden.
  • Leave cookies to cool on wire rack and store them in an airtight container.
Kitchen note: These cookies will be softened after two days.


Enjoy Baking!

  33. Hi Ann,

    I could not resist of making these last night so I did it. But mine didn't turn out as pretty as yours. A bit whiter too. If I put longer in the oven (small fire), the bottom would be burnt! I should probably invest on a solid star nozzle for making cookies too. Anyway, they still taste great. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Christine, Your cookies look good! You can try using a cookie press next time which is easier to handle than star nozzle.

  34. I instantly bookmarked it even though I am not sure what Ground Almond means (I grind almond or is there such thing sold in store?). My husband and I love earl grey AND earl grey cookies. I want to make it like right now!!! I never pipe the cookies... I really don't know if I can make this..... scarrred!

    1. Nami, Ground almond is almond meal. This is available in most bakery store.
      No worry, practice makes perfect. I'm sure you can do a good job :)

  35. Hi

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! I was looking for something a little different from the usual CNY bakes.

    I was keen on some Taiwanese recipe books from Popular but hampered by my inadequate Chinese :(

  36. Hi Ann, I love these delicate little cookies! I wish I had smell-o-vision to enjoy the distict flavor of the Earl Grey. Beautifully presented as usual!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. gosh earl grey and almonds are perhaps one of my favorite combinations! I think I'll add some lemon zest as I love a slice of lemon in my tea, so I bet in the cookie it'll taste as good!

    1. Benny, We finished off the cookies the next day and its was a little soft after putting them in the container. You can try to bake another 2-3 minutes longer. Hope this helps.
