Bridgerton / London Fog Shortbread Cookies

This is another example of seeing the show before the book. I really enjoyed the show and I can’t wait to get to know more of the Bridgerton clan. Since it will be a while before the next season is released, I am currently on the library wait list for the first 3 books of the series. I’m always curious to see how the book compares to the show.

I made a batch of London Fog Shortbread Cookies to snack on while binging the show. They were the perfect companion.

London Fog Shortbread Cookies


  • 1 cup softened butter
  • ⅔ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 ¾ cup flour
  • 1 vanilla bean split and scraped (or 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste)
  • 1 tablespoon Earl Grey tea (about 1-2 teabags)
  • Turbinado sugar for sprinkling


Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar till fluffy. Add the vanilla bean paste, the flour and the tea leaves. Mix until dough comes together.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 mins.

Roll out the dough to about 1/2-inch on a lightly floured surface.

Cut out desired shapes with cutters. Place on prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar.

Chill the cut cookies for 20 minutes before baking. This will help keep the cookies from spreading when they hit the heat.

Bake for about 12-14 minutes or until the edges are just barely brown. Cool on wire racks.
