Cinnamon Apple Spice tea leaves add a Autumnal twist to your favorite shortbread cookie.
When I was reading a recent article in Family Circle Magazine, I came across a recipe they shared for Earl Grey Shortbread. I never hear of putting tea leaves into cookies before and wanted to try it out for myself. I don’t particularly care for Earl Grey tea so I didn’t have that on hand, so I decided to give my shortbread a distinctive flavor and used Cinnamon Apple Spice tea instead.

These Cinnamon Apple Spice Shortbread cookies were so easy to make! Just add all of your ingredients to your food processor, pulse a few times; then let the dough rest and chill before baking. Since I don’t like complicated desserts, I really loved how this recipe only had four ingredients; all of which are staples I always have on hand in my pantry.

You can use any type of tea leaves you like. Mint. Lemon. Raspberry. Peach. You get the point. Each one will give your cookie a unique flavor all on its own. I used a heart cookie cutter, but you can use any shape you would like to. I just thought spreading a little love is good any time throughout the year. These cookies were delicious, not overly sweet like some cookies and would go perfectly with a hot cup of tea for an afternoon or evening snack. ~Enjoy!
