Makes: About 12 biscuits

Lucky Ingredients

  •   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

Method

  •   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.

  •   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.
