From the Grocer
½ cup granulated sugar
2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
2 cups flour
1 cup confectioner’s sugar


PROCESS 1 TBS TSTE® White Tropical Tea and granulated sugar in food processor until finely ground. Transfer to mixing bowl. Add butter and mix on low until well combined, about 5 mins. Mix in flour just until combined.
FORM dough into two discs and wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 20-30 mins until firm.
PLACE disc on counter between two sheets of plastic wrap. Roll dough to ¼-inch thick. Cut out cookies with 2-inch diameter pastry cutter. If dough gets too soft, re-chill.

BREW remaining 2 TBS TSTE® White Tropical Tea in ¼ cup water at 185°F for 4 mins. Strain. Stir confectioner’s sugar, 1 TBS brewed tea, and TSTE® Madagascar Pure Vanilla Extract together until smooth. Thin by adding more tea until glaze is thick but able to fall from a fork in an even stream. Drizzle on cooled cookies with fork. Let dry for one hour.
