Heeyyy!!! I haven’t forgotten you all, I’ve just had a rather busy month! I did a short course about starting up a business (Yes,Dinie dreams too!!), and been preparing for a major event.. I hope to let you know more as the weeks roll on! I hope you all can make it-Well,you London/U.K followers will most likely make it! And I hope you do!
In the meantime, I’ve been inspired and this time its the bakery menu that has a new recipe. They are spiced and fragrant biscuits, using Lapsang Souchong tea! Feel free to use any other tea of your choice.
MAKES 30 BISCUITS/COOKIES
100 grams of Plain Flour sieved
50 grams of Caster Sugar
100 grams of Margarine/Butter
1 Lapsang Souchong Teabags- This is a delicately smoky and fragrant flavoured tea, made by smoking tea leaves over pine leaves/bark.
1/2 Whole Mace shell(Or Mace Powder.)
1 Teaspoon of Sichuan Peppercorns
1 Packet of Dark Chocolate Chips
Pinch of Salt
Sieve the flour into a bowl, and add the sugar and other ingredients, including spices which should have been ground to a powder.
Rub together using fingertips, then knead the dough together lightly to mix the ingredients together. Then, add a few splashes of water to bind the mixture into a dough. This should not take long. Make sure the sugar and margarine have combined very well before this last step.
Lightly flour a surface or clean dry chopping board,and roll out a small quantity of dough. Use cookie cutters to shape the biscuit dough,and place in a non stick baking tray. Bake for around 10-15 minutes on 180° in an electric oven. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Serve with.. What else.. Tea!! Disfrutalo!
