Chai and Lemon Zest Cookies

Well I finally found the recipe that matched these cookies! 

I had the pictures for a while, but I couldn't find the recipe that went with it. I knew it was in this one book, but after going through it several times I couldn't find it. Turns out I was calling it the wrong thing. Oh well. But here it is!

1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of finely ground Chai tea
1 cup (2 sticks) of softened butter
1/2 cup of confectioner's sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon of lemon zest
1 egg white, lightly beaten

So, you first mix together the flour, salt, and ground tea in a large bowl. 

In another bowl, beat together butter and confectioner's sugar until blended. Then you beat in the egg and lemon zest. (I didn't add the confectioner's sugar to my recipe and it tasted really good without it, so  just in case you wanted sugar free!)

Gradually start mixing in the flour mixture from the first step and then put the batch in the fridge for about 30 minutes to cool down and harden.

Once the oven has been preheated to 325 F and your cookie sheet has been buttered, you can scoop the dough into little circles and spread them out on the cookie sheet.

Then brush the top of the circles with the egg white and cooke them for about 10 to 12 minutes!

Happy eating! I have been so busy lately. I was in PA for a wedding last week and for the next week I will be in South Carolina and won't have internet, so I apologize in advance! My oh my this summer has flown!

Love, love
