Vegan Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies

This is an old favourite recipe of mine for a super fast and tasty shortbread cookie that can be whipped up and on your plate in less time than it takes to walk to the shop to buy a packet of biscuits. They look and sound fancy too so they make a great gift. They are very easy to make and if you're not an Earl Grey fan try subbing it with chai.


Makes 16 biscuits

1/2 cup of vegan margarine
1/2 cup if icing sugar (confectioners sugar)
Couple of drops of vanilla extract
1 cup + 2 tablespoons of plain flour
1/8 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
1/8 teaspoon of salt
The contents of 3 Earl Grey teabags

Preheat the oven to 350F/ 180C/ Gas Mark 4

Grease and line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper or use a silpat mat

Beat the margarine until creamy. add the vanilla extract and icing sugar and beat again.

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and bicarbonate of soda. Stir in the contents of the teabags.

Fold this mixture into the icing sugar and margarine mixture. Add a bit more flour if it's too sticky.

Roll out onto a floured board and cut out with your favourite cookie cutters.

Transfer to the baking tray and bake for 12-14 minutes until they start to turn golden.

Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack.

Whilst they cool put the kettle on and make yourself a pot of Earl Grey.


  1. I make a version of these and they are so good.

  2. Wow these sound so easy, I'm gonna get some earl grey in :D

  3. oh these sound soooo good. I adore earl grey, in fact I prefer it to regular tea! bookmarking! :)

  4. I am severely partial to Earl Grey and biscuits. Normally I have one on the side with a cup of the other, but this is cutting out the middleman in a rather fab way!

  5. These sound delicious and they look fancy and pretty too. Perfect.

  6. Love earl grey baked goodies.

  7. I love everything about this! They are easy to make and that's a great flavour combination.
