Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
There’s nothing quite like slowing down and taking a break over a warm cup of your favorite tea. This is a quiet pastime that you can enjoy on your own, or gather together with choice friends or loved ones to sip and chat. Whatever the occasion, nothing pairs better with tea than petite, lightly sweetened biscuits. This recipe for tea cookies uses Bergamot essential oil, making them the perfect companion for a rich cup of earl grey.
Tip: To make bars or wedges instead of round-cut cookies, skip the fridge. Press the dough into a greased 8-inch round cake pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes until a light golden brown. Remove from heat and immediately remove from the pan. Use a pizza cutter to cut into wedges and then allow to cool (it won’t cut as easily if you let it cool first).
Whether your tea of choice is black, green, or herbal, these cookies add the perfect finishing touch to a relaxing tea break. Make them yourself, post it on Instagram or Facebook, and tag us (@doterraca)! We want to see what you do with this recipe!
