Directions

Batter
Step 1
Sift together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder in a bowl and set aside.
Step 2
Beat sugar and butter together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy for about 5 minutes. Then add cream cheese, egg and vanilla and continue to mix for about one minute.
Step 3
Turn mixer speed to low and incorporate the flour mixture a few tablespoons at a time until thoroughly combined. Cover and chill dough while making the filling.
Filling
Step 4
Preheat oven to 350°F. Brew tea for 8 minutes, then strain into saucepan set over medium heat. Add sugar and salt and let mixture boil slowly for about 5 minutes, stirring often.
Step 5
Add the cornstarch and continue to simmer on medium-low heat for another 5 minutes. Then turn off heat and set aside.
Cookies
Step 6
Roll chilled dough into walnut sized balls (about 1 tbsp each) and arrange on cookie sheets one inch apart. Press a thumbprint into each cookie and bake for about 10-12 minutes.
Step 7
Remove from oven and quickly reshape the thumbprint with the back of a teaspoon. Fill each indentation with the tea syrup, being careful that they do not overflow.
Step 8
Place back in oven and continue baking for 14-18 minutes or until edges turn golden brown. Makes about 50 cookies
