Vanilla Rooibos Tea Cookies by Rivka

WHO: Rivka is a cookie-addicted Food52er who is health consultant by day, food blogger by night. 
WHAT: A cookie that captures tea time all in one bite.
HOW: Whip up a shortbread-style dough, roll in sugar, and wait impatiently by the oven door. 
WHY WE LOVE IT: For the tea time twist, Rivka has you toast Rooios leaves until they're beautifully fragrant -- this perfumes your kitchen (and your cookies) from the very first step of this recipe.

What are the measurements for all the ingredients? How hot do you make the oven? How long do they bake for? I wanna make these but I need more info!
