inspired by: karolin schnoor & 'holiday' earl grey.

Mint design blog posted a couple of things this week that I was/am really excited about!

First, Karolin Schnoor makes some lovely folky and colorful pieces that are interactive (and inexpensive) too!  You can "make" a beautiful owl, fox, rabbit, or squirrel for $6.80 (including shipping)!  Or buy a very pretty card.  Take a look:

Next, this delicious dish was posted and I made it this morning!  YUM.  It was really tasty.  I am a huge fan of earl grey in all forms I have had it in!


AND!  Here is my favorite earl grey treat recipe:

EARL GREY TEA COOKIES!!  (they taste a lot like lemon poppyseed!)

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
4 tbls earl grey tea leaves
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces (or grated!)

1. heat oven to 375.  pulse together all dry ingredients in food processor until tea leaves are pulverized.  add vanilla, 1 tsp water, and butter.  mix together until a dough is formed.
2. divide dough in half.  place each half on a sheet of plastic wrap, and roll into a 12-inch log, about 2 inches in diameter.  wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
3. slice each log into disks, 1/3 inch thick.  place on parchment or foil-lind baking sheets 2 inches apart.
4. bake until edges are just brown (about 12 minutes).  let cool on sheets.
