Christmas herbal tea shortbreads

11/22/2019

This winter, to accompany your tea or your hot chocolate, there is nothing like delicious biscuits that come straight out of the oven!

Shortbreads are the must-haves of the Christmas season. To stay in the festive spirit, give them a shape of Christmas tree or star using cookie cutters.

This recipe requires a rest time of at least 12h, provide the preparation the day before cooking.

Ingredients for 40 shortbreads:

- 225 g of almond powder

- 225 g of sugar

- Dammann Christmas herbal tea

- 2 egg whites

- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice

- Brown sugar

Steps:

1/ Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt. Gradually add the powdered sugar while continuing to beat.

2/ Take a cup of these eggs in snow that will be used for icing.

3/ Powder the Christmas herbal tea into a mortar or coffee grinder, pass the powder through a fine sieve to remove the excessively thick pieces. Reduce until you get 20g of powder.

4/ Stir in the remaining snow with the almond powder, the powdered Christmas herbal tea and the lemon juice. Form a ball of dough.

5/ Cover your work plan with a thick layer of brown sugar. Flatten the dough keeping a height of about 5 mm.

6/ Cut out the tree-shaped dough using a cookie cutter (or any other shape as you wish). So that the cookie cutter does not stick to the dough, soak it regularly in cold water.

7/ Place the trees on a sheet of parchment paper placed on a baking sheet. Garnish a pastry bag with the reserved snow and glaze the shapes with this preparation. Allow to dry for at least 12 hours.

8/ Preheat the oven to 210 °C. Cook for at least 5 minutes and watch the cooking, the icing can quickly take on colour.
