Scrumtrulescent! These are delicious. I am a big fan of shortbread and I love unusual ingredients so I had to try these. So easy to make, it was a pleasure. I used Tazo Earl Grey Tea - very fragrant! These cookies were light, crisp and the tea created a wonderful subtle flavor. This is a shortbread recipe you could really play with!!
