Citrus, Earl Grey, and Caramelized White Chocolate Sugar Cookies

We're taking sugar cookies up a notch with flavors of earl grey tea, freshly zested orange, and caramelized white chocolate. While creaming the butter and sugar, a bunch of orange zest and a bag of earl grey tea is added so that all of those oils and flavors are absorbed into the fat. Then, your regular cast of characters make an appearance…eggs, flour, leavening agents, salt, and finally little bits of caramelized white chocolate. They are chewy on the inside, with buttery, crispy edges and you’ll want to eat the whole tray in one sitting. This is a recipe you will come back to time and time again.

Ingredients


Instructions


Preheat oven to 350° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine sugar, butter, orange zest, vanilla extract, and earl grey tea. Cream for 2-3 minutes, until well-combined and mixture is light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
With the mixer on low speed, add the egg and mix until combined. Gradually add the dry ingredients, mixing just until no dry streaks remain. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the caramelized white chocolate and mix by hand with a rubber spatula until evenly distributed.
Scoop cookie dough into 2 1/2 tbsp-sized balls and place on your prepared baking sheet. Chill for at least 10 minutes.
Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are beginning to brown and the tops are dry to the touch. Tap the tray on the counter a couple of times to settle the cookies, then let cool completely on the baking tray.
