  • Add earl grey tea to a spice grinder or food processor and pulse until it breaks down into powder. Set aside.
  • Cream powdered sugar and butter until fluffy. Add in the lemon juice, vanilla extract and salt. Mix until well combined.
  • Add the earl grey tea and all purpose flour to the mixture. Mix until a soft dough forms.
  • Roll out the dough onto a silicone mat until it is 1/4 an inch thick.
  • Transfer the silicone mat onto a baking sheet. Rest dough in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • Move the oven rack to the center of the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Prepare 2 baking sheets by covering them with parchment paper.
  • After 30 minutes, take the dough out from the fridge. Use a cookie cutter that is 2.5 inches in diameter to cut out your cookies. After you cut out your first batch, combine the remaining dough, and roll it out to cut more cookies. Repeat this process until you run out of dough
  • For half the cookies, use a cookie cutter that is 1 inch in diameter to cut out the center of the cookies.
  • Place cookies onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes until the edges start to turn a golden color.
  • Cool cookies for 10 minutes.
  • Add 1-2 teaspoons of blackberry jam to the half of the cookies without the center cut out. Place the cut out cookies on top of the jam, sandwiching the jam in the center.
