Blood Orange Cookie Bars
These blood orange cookie bars have an earl grey and citrus laced, buttery, shortbread cookie base and are topped with a reduced blood orange glaze.
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Line a 8X8 pan with parchment paper along the bottom up the sides and with a 1-2" overhang.
Whisk the flours, salt and loose leaf tea from the tea bags together until well combined.
Beat the butter and orange sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Add the egg yolk and vanilla extract.
Add the dry ingreidents to the wet and mix by hand or on the lowest setting until JUST combined. Press into the prepared pan.
Bake in a 350F oven for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are set and golden brown. Cool in the pan on a cooling rack for about 30 minutes.
While the cookie bars are cooling, make the blood orange glaze. Pour the blood orange juice in a small or medium sauce pan. Over medium high heat, reduce the juice to about 2 tbsp. Whisk into the powdered sugar.
Pour the glaze over the top. Carefully and gently smooth the glaze across the top. Allow the glaze to fully set, about 60-90 minutes.
