Lady Grey Tea Cookies

Lady Grey Tea Cookies

Sitting at home, lamenting the fact that I had left all of my recipes at school, I decided that the show must go on and that I would find a recipe that would both give me something to post the next day and would appease my sweet tooth. So, after looking through multiple cookbooks and a fair amount of googling, I stumbled upon a recipe for Earl Grey Tea Cookies. Suddenly, that was all I could think about. I did some more searching, and only having Lady Grey Tea, a unique Twining’s blend that is similar to Earl Grey, but has hints of citrus added, I found a recipe for Lady Grey Tea Cookies on the Twining’s website.
