“n. The absence of stress while drinking tea”
I have never been a coffee drinker; so I guess me and tea, were just meant to be! I love baking a variety of cookies that are perfect for tea time, or to bring as a favor to any event. The shortbread cookie with jam is a traditional tea cookie. Tea Biscuits were developed in the 17th century in Yorkshire, England for the upper classes as a light snack between full-course meals.
Lets spruce it up a bit, shall we? I tried to create a cookie that would be a great balance between a traditional tea biscuit, and something that would still fulfill all my sweet and yummy cravings! You can change the filling to your particular craving or preference if you would like. I have done this same cookie dough and concept with any toasted nut & cinnamon sugar, nutella, vanilla custard, or any marmalade/jam filling.
This buttery and flakey shortbread cookie, with fig marmalade & toasted almonds will hit the spot! The combination is perfect with a warm cup of tea, and a great book!
