Strawberry Lemonade and Blueberry Bliss Tea Cookies

Tea is a daily event at my house. There isn't anything better than having a hot cup of tea first thing in the morning. Even my small boys enjoy sipping a cup of warm tea.

I use tea when ever I can. In rice, in baking, and in a cup of hot water, of course! I like it anyway I have had it and especially love Teavana tea. I decided to use two of their teas (Blueberry Bliss and Strawberry Lemonade but only titled one) to make soft, chewy and delicious cookies.

If you love tea as much as I do you should definitely try these. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Step 1: Recipe

Strawberry Lemonade and Blueberry Bliss Tea Cookies

6 T. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1 c. flour
1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. orange zest
1 1/2 t. finely ground blueberry bliss tea
1 t. lemon zest
1 1/2 t. finely ground strawberry lemonade tea

In a medium mixing bowl cream butter and sugar. Add egg and stir to combine. Add flour and baking powder and stir.

This is the dough base. Divide dough in half.

Step 2: Grind Tea

In a spice grinder - grind blueberry bliss tea and set aside. Repeat with strawberry lemonade tea and set aside.

Step 3: Mix Both Doughs

Zest 1 t. each of lemon and orange rind and set aside.

To one half of the dough add orange zest and ground blueberry bliss tea. Mix well to incorporate.

Form dough into a log and wrap tightly in waxed paper. Place in the freezer.

To the other half of dough add lemon zest and strawberry lemonade tea. Mix well to incorporate.

Form dough into a log and wrap tightly in waxed paper. Place in the freezer.

Freeze both doughs until firm.

Step 4: Slice Dough and Bake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Remove doughs from the freezer and remove waxed paper. Slice dough into 1/4 inch slices and place on parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes or just until set. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.

Eat and enjoy!
I have never thought to use tea like this. That's awesome.
More of a coffee fanatic myself, but these sound delish!
