Earl Grey biscuits

28 Mar

These Earl Grey biscuits are one of the recipes we’ve tried as part of our Earl Grey Challenge. They’re Lahloo Pantry’s chef Laura’s take on this recipe by Martha Stewart. Delicious and zesty, the perfect accompaniment to a cup of Earl Grey and a lovely present for friends or family!

Ingredients:

250g flour

225g butter

100g sugar

10g Lahloo Earl Grey

grated orange zest

a pinch of salt

Use a mortar to grind the tea leaves, mixing them with the flour and a pinch of salt.

In a separate bowl, mix butter, sugar and the orange zest. Then gradually add the dry ingredients to this mixture.

Divide the dough in two, and put each part on a separate piece of baking paper. Shape these  into logs, rolling them carefully in the baking paper to a diameter of about 1 and 1/4 inches. Freeze the logs in the baking paper for 1 hour.

Pre-heat the oven to 175 C .

Cut each log into biscuit-sized slices. Place them on a lined baking sheet about 1 inch apart.

Bake 12-15 minutes until golden brown.

Cool on a rack and they’re ready to eat! Enjoy!
