Title: Chai Shortbread
Post by: cookie1 on March 28, 2017, 02:38:15 am
Chai Shortbread
Makes about 12
Ingredients
150g butter
160g caster sugar
teaspoon vanilla
300g plain flour
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon chai tea, finely ground
Choc melts
Preparation
Heat oven to 180* and prepare a tray.
Grind chai in the thermomix. It helps to put the basket on to keep the tea low in the bowl, or use a mortar and pestle if you have one, or even a hammer and plastic bag. Remove.
Place butter, sugar and vanilla in bowl.
Cream for about 1 minute, speed 3/4.
Add the flour, salt and chai. Knead until it sort of comes together. It may be a bit crumbly.
Remove from bowl and press together, forming a 20cm long log. Wrap in glad wrap and place in fridge for about an hour.
Remove and cut into 1.5cm discs and place on tray.
Bake for about 12 minutes.
I put choc melts on some and choc chips on others as soon as I took them out of the oven.
You could spread melted chocolate on them.

This is based on a recipe from T2. Since I have made these I have noticed Skinnymixer has a recipe on her site for a chai mix. I haven't tried it yet but it would be perfect for these biscuits.http://skinnymixers.com.au/skinnymixers-vanilla-chai-powder/

The biscuits look delicious Cookie.
I wonder if Earl Grey Tea would work?

They look nice cookie, is the chai taste prevalent?  Mind you, I have no idea what chai tastes like LOL

I don't see why any tea flavour wouldn't work to be honest. Yes, the chai flavour is fairly strong. Next time I do them I will try Skinnymixers chai tea mix.
