Earl grey is one of my favorite teas and it is one of the only tea, other than masala chai, that I would add milk and sugar to. I adore how fragrant it is and how mild and comforting.
These tea biscuits are inspired by the flavors of Earl Grey Milk Tea. Start first by making the Earl Grey Butter by blitzing earl grey tea leaves with sugar and milk powder in a blender and then creaming it together with some butter (I love the Earl Grey Butter and would highly recommend making some extra to spread on toast, waffles, popovers etc). After the butter is nice and fluffy, add in flour, shape, wrap in plastic wrap and transfer it to the fridge to solidify so it is easier to work with. You can either slice the dough into biscuits or you can roll it out and cut it. The process is very similar to making shortbread cookies.
