Hey there Plus Ones!
I leave this week for England, Scotland, and Wales! I am super excited to finally be making a trip overseas. One of the biggest things I am looking forward to this week is all the tea and biscuits I will be indulging in.
While in school, I came across a great recipe for butter tea cookies that are easy to make, versatile for every occasion, and very delicious. So I leave you with this recipe and I will think of all of you while I am
having my own tea and biscuits. See you when I get back!
Butter Tea Cookies
Oven Temp: 375 F
Baking Time: about 10 min
Butter (or half butter and half shortening) 12 oz.
Granulated Sugar 6 oz.
Confectioners’ sugar 3 oz.
Eggs 4.5 oz.
Vanilla extract 1 tsp.
Cake Flour 1 lb. 2 oz.
Paddle butter and sugar until smooth. The paste should have the look of smooth peanut butter. Add eggs and vanilla a little at a time until fully incorporated. Then add the flour. Put dough into a bad and pipe out small cookies about the size of a quarter, (You can use a star tip or a plain tube as well), onto an ungreased or parchment lined baking sheets. Bake until golden on the edges.
My favorite are to create an indent on the top of the cookie and fill it with jam then bake them. There are so many variations you can do with this cookie. Get creative and let me know how they work out!
