Feeling grey? Or just looking for a treat? Our earl grey teabag biscuits feed up to 12 lucky people.
Makes: About 12 biscuits
- 1 heaped tablespoon earl grey tea
- 125g plain flour
- 50g sugar
- 20g icing sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 100g unsalted butter at room temp
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-2 teaspoons water
- 100g quality 70% dark chocolate
- Preheat the oven to 190C
- Combine sugars, flour, salt and tea.
- Lightly rub the butter in to the dry ingredients with the vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon of water.
- Using hands, quickly mix it all together until a dough forms. If needed add a few extra drops of water to bring it together.
- Place the dough onto a large sheet of parchment paper and roll out until it’s about 1cm thick. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
(You have 30 minutes to kill, so why not have a tea break? Check out our teas here!)
- Once the dough has chilled, roll it out to about 1/2cm thick and cut out the teabag shapes (you can use a teabag as a guide). Using a straw, press a small hole through the top of the biscuit to later thread the string through.
- Place them on to a lined baking tray with about an inch between each and bake until the edges are golden (about 12 minutes). Leave on the sheet for about 5 minutes before removing.
- Melt the chocolate in a bowl above simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Dip the cooled biscuits in to the melted chocolate ¾ of the way up and place on to baking paper to set.
