Everyone seems to be playing show and tell with their lovely creations with our beloved Cara McGee’s fandom teas. I thought I’d share my recipe too.


Watson (Earl Grey/Irish Breakfast) Shortbread Cookies

(also customizable for any of your fandom teas!)

  • 3/4 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1/8 Cups Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup of Butter (at room temp)
  • 2 Cups of Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Tea(more or less, if you want)
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla (more or less, if you want)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt

~~~~~~~~How To Instructions~~~~~~~

  1. In a coffee grinder/blender/whatever, blend the tea until it is a powdery mix.
  2. In a food processor, mix together the tea, the flour, and the salt. Blend it together so that the tea is evenly spread throughout the flour.
  3. Pulse the butter, vanilla and sugars until it makes a dough.
  4. Put the dough on a plate or in a bowl in either a log or a loaf in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes. Dough will stiffen.
  5. Preheat oven to 375F.
  6. Slice the log or roll out the dough and make cutouts.
  7. Arrange on sheets that are lined with parchment paper (I didn’t have any on hand), one or two inches apart. They don’t really spread that much.
  8. Bake for about 12 minutes, until edges are brown.
  9. Cool for 5 minutes on the pan, then on wire racks.
  10. ENJOY YOUR WATSON SHORTBREAD COOKIES WITH A CUP OF WATSON TEA (or Sherlock to make a Johnlock treat!). DO IT.
