Sweet Tea Cookies by TheRunawaySpoon

WHO: TheRunawaySpoon is a food writer who is happiest in the kitchen.
WHAT: A cakey cookie with a tea-infused, Southern twang.  
HOW: This is a standard issue batter, plus smart additions and a little tea-brewing along the way.
WHY WE LOVE IT: This recipe takes everything we love about a good old fashioned glass of sweet tea -- the herbal notes, the mint, and of course, the heavy-handed sweetness -- and bakes it into cookie form. Your 3 p.m. sugar cravings will never be the same.
