Recipe from foodnetwork

Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons loose Earl Grey tea leaves (4bags of earl grey.. I used 6 and it was way too much)
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
Directions
In a food processor, pulse together the flour, tea, and salt, until the tea is just spotted throughout the flour. Add the confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, and butter. Pulse together just until a dough is formed. Place dough on a sheet of plastic wrap, and roll into a log, about 2 1/2-inches in diameter. Tightly twist each end of wrap, and chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.Slice the log into 1/3-inch thick disks. Place on parchment or silpat lined baking sheets, 2 inches apart (2 probably needed depending on size of sheets). Bake until the edges are just brown, about 12 minutes. Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks and cool to room temperature.

for some reason the bottom of the cookies keep burning.
We had to go 35F for 10mins. still kinda brown 😦
alternative, we also used chai tea leaves in place of earl grey and that tasted quite good as well 🙂
We used salted butter and caster sugar, they worked out just fine. wpid-wp-1447035722844.jpg
