Have your tea and eat it too with these Earl Grey Snickerdoodles. A classic holiday cookie with a little extra flavor pairing cinnamon with finely ground Early Grey tea.
It wouldn’t be my blogiversary if I had actually planned anything for it, and sure enough today marks 12 years!
Quite literally I tell myself every October that I need to start thinking about how I am going to celebrate this day and more often than not it’s a mad dash. The other times it is pure luck that I happen to have something planned that day, usually in the form of an online event such as #ChristmasCookies Week.
I suppose the best accidental celebration would be cookies for a blog with “cookie” in the name. And these Earl Gray snickerdoodles are a fine way to celebrate in my opinion. Great for every day or for special occasions! It’s literally the classic snickerdoodle with a boost of flavor from real earl gray tea mixed into the dough and in the coating.
More of a coffee lover? That’s not my jam but these coffee cookies from Belle of the Kitchen look like winners (if I were into coffee that is).

Twelve years ago: And so it begins
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1-1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled to almost room temperature
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 1 egg, room temperature
- 1 Tbsp milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 Tbsp finely ground black tea
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp finely ground black tea
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- In a medium bowl, Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cream of tartar. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until creamy, about 3 minutes. Add egg, milk, vanilla, and tea and beat until combined. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing until just combined. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or overnight.
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Combine coating ingredients in a shallow bowl.
- Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and roll in the spiced sugar coating, shaking off any excess. Place on prepared cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.
- Bake 8-10 minutes, or until edges of cookies are just starting to brown and centers are set. Let cool on sheets for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
