Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies

I'm very happy about these cookies :)
They are so simple, and the tiny, one-bite size makes them even better!

These use the basic 1:2:3 ratio for cookies--1 part sugar: 2 parts fat: 3 parts flour. I used real (unsalted, sweet cream) butter to make them into shortbread. I also added a flavoring that I've been wanting to play with for a while: Earl Grey tea. There is probably nothing "healthy" about these cookies, but you've got to splurge sometimes...and they do taste good! :)

Earl Grey Shortbread Cookie Bites

60 g. gluten-free all purpose flour blend
20 g. (2 T.) powdered palm sugar
1/4 t. salt
1 t. earl grey tea leaves (from 1 regular tea bag)
40 g. (3 T.) cold, unsalted butter (cold)
20 g. (1 T.) vanilla almond milk

Mix dry ingredients. Add butter, and cut into small chunks with two knives.
Add the milk, and knead dough with hands until dough forms into a soft ball. Roll into a 1" log, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Slice log into 18 pieces (1/2" thick), and place cookies on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes, or till edges of the cookies are lightly browned.
Cool completely before serving.
Makes 18 one-bite cookies.
