French Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies

We had a layover at Changi Airport in Singapore during a recent trip to Manila. I know I should not miss the opportunity to visit their TWG Tea Boutique in the few hours we are there. TWG stands for The Wellbeing Group, a well-known Singaporean luxury tea house chain. I bought several kinds of tea, and while browsing, the box of Earl Grey Shortbread cookies caught my daughter’s eye. We knew we had to get it since my girls love Earl Grey Tea. I just regret not getting more than one box.

Since I bought a tin of French Earl Grey from them, I just thought of making our shortbread cookies.

This recipe was from the Foodnetwork website by Claire Robinson. I followed the recipe, except I didn’t use a food processor. I just used a pastry cutter to blend in all the ingredients. This seems to be the easiest recipe for shortbread, but next time, I’ll make one wherein you roll the dough and use a cookie cutter to get even and uniform circles.
