Cook Time: 10 Min.
Chill Time: 4 Hrs.
What you need:
(click + to add ingredients to your shopping list)
+ 3/4 c. granulated sugar
+ 1 1/2 tsp. freshly grated pink grapefruit zest (from about 1 grapefruit)
+ 1 heaping tsp. peppermint tea leaves (from about 1 tea bag)
+ 3 large egg whites
+ 1/2 c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
+ 1/2 c. flour
+ 1/4 tsp. salt
+ 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
+ 1/4 tsp. peppermint extract
What to do:
1. Combine the sugar, grapefruit zest and peppermint tea leaves in the workbowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Pulse until the zest and tea are fully incorporated into the sugar.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg whites and flavored sugar until well combined. Don't beat in any air or make the whites foamy. Add the melted butter and whisk until incorporated. Add the flour, salt, vanilla, and peppermint extract, and whisk until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hrs. and up to 10 days.
3. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone non-stick baking mat (or with parchment paper sprayed generously with pan spray).
4. Spoon a tablespoon of batter on the baking sheet. Using the back of the spoon, spread the batter as evenly and thinly as possible into a 4- to 4 1/2-in. circle (the batter will not spread much during baking). Bake until golden brown all over, 8 to 10 min. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately start to slide a thin metal spatula under the edge of one cookie. In about 10 sec., the cookie will hold together enough for you to slide it off the sheet. Immediately lay the cookie over a rolling pin, juice bottle, or other cylindrical shape and leave it to cool. Quickly repeat with the remaining cookies. If the cookies begin to cool and crisp, return the pan to the oven for a few seconds to warm and soften.
5. Let the baking sheet cool between batches, or use a second baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat (or well-greased parchment paper).
