Twinings Tea: Holiday or Winter Spice Tea
Makes approximately 24 pieces.
- 8 ounces ( 2 sticks) Butter
- 4 ounces (1/2 cup) Sugar
- 12 ounces (3 cups) Flour
- 2 Tablespoons Twinings Holiday or Winter Spice Tea
- 2 ounces (1/4 cup) Water
- Heat water to the boil and pour over tea, let steep for 5 minutes. Strain and squeeze brewed leaves to retain as much liquid concentrate in a separate cup. Set aside.
- While blending (creaming) the butter and sugar together, add the tea liquor.
- Add the flour a little at a time, thoroughly blending in each addition. The finished ball of dough will be very soft and sticky.
- Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.
- Roll out chilled dough on a floured board to a thickness of a 1/3 inch to 1/2 inch. Cut into your favourite shapes.
- Bake in a moderate 350°F (176°C) oven until lightly brown edges appear ( about 15 to 20 minutes).
