While all baked goods go particularly well with a cup of tea, shortbread may be the best pairing. Although most people may not try to make shortbread, it is actually easy to bake. Here is a recipe, courtesy of Typhoo, for tea flavored shortbread.
To begin, gather these ingredients:
175g/6oz plain flour
1 tbsp milk
Typhoo Tea Bag (any variety)
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
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 them with a star-shaped cookie cutter to make them more festive.
Bake for 15 minutes before placing on to a wire rack to cool.
