Tea flavoured Shortbread Recipe 14



I am a tea monster.  Anyone that knows me will acknowledge that I am rarely without a cup of tea in hand! Maxi is a massive fan of shortbread so we decided to experiment and produce a tea flavoured shortbread and wow, it was a HUGE hit and so simple.  Everyone in the family prefered our tea flavored shortbread over the plain one.

Shortbread is a great biscuit to bake with kids.  It only has four ingredients and is really forgiving, plus kids tend to love the taste to.  Our shortbread recipe is probably the same as everyone elses and I think could have been originally from the Bero book once upon a time, but has been handwritten in my recipe book for as long as I can remember and is the same one my mum made with me as a child.

Rub butter, caster sugar and flour together in a big bowl until it looks like breadcrumbs, I used to call this tickling with the boys.  Now we just add it all to the food processor and pulse it.

Heat a small cup of milk and add the teabag and allow to steep.

Add a tablespoon of milk to your bread crumbs and knead for a minute or two until it forms a smooth ball of dough.  Cover with clingfilm and pop in the fridge for half an hour.

Turn onto a floured surface and roll out the dough until it’s 1cm thick.  Cut out biscuit shapes using a biscuit cutter.

Reshape the scraps and cut more shapes. Place the biscuits on a baking tray and prick with a fork.  We actually stamped with a star shaped cookie cutter to make them more festive.
