I can honestly say I have survived a few weeks on y onltea accompanied with butter cookies (and it shows!). I have had travels where I felt too exhausted, ill or wary to eat a whole meal – when I work, I like to keep it light and that means tea the proper way – English breakfast or earl grey, milk and sugar. And of course, chocolate, and if possible, chocolate biscuits. This is the British influence I have from my childhood that has carried forward – I am a confusing soul to many – eat pizza like the Americans but need dainty scones, biscuits and tea like the British!
These shortbread biscuits take me back to my childhood, and I have finally perfected this ridiculously easy and simple recipe that takes minutes to make and while I do mention a chilling time – I have rarely done it, but also, I do work with the air condition on which helps save me that time.
You can cut these into any shape you like, but I love the rectangle fingers, because A) I do can cut them all at one go and B) minimizes waste of dough!
Go ahead, make ‘em this Sunday, to pull you through the week.
