Great Cookies, Bad Luck.

Hey, Sunday again.. and it suppose to be a day for sharing a Recipe with all of you guys but i'm experimenting some bad Luck over here. You see, I think that my oven has past away or something, it's not working and i feel quite sad  in this very moment. In honor to finished "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" book, I was going to make some "Black Tea and Milk Chocolate Cameo Cookies" I mean, If that book have a flavour it will be an earthy flavor like Black tea with milk, Sweetened with a hint of honey. And that is what i'm trying to portrait on this recipe. A cookie that when you get the first bite and find the soft hints of the black tea and the floral touch of the honey you can say "Wow, It's like having the tea time"

I find this recipe on a blog that i must say have the most beautiful photos that i've seen on my freaking life... I feel amateur in front of that blog. (Well, I feel amateur on front of a Thousand blogs over here) But i saw that recipe and i felt in love of that idea. Tea in a cookie? You can bet. Besides i get also inspired by the book, and when i try the cookies for the first time i was finishing to read the book. So i feel that it was faith, having a tea cookie when i was reading an alternative book about a british writter who used to love tea.

No picture this time, but i'm going to leave the Recipe for you guys to try it. Then you can tell me what do you think about it.

"Black Tea and Mik Chocolate Cameo Cookies"
Inspired by Cannelle e Vanille Blog Diamants


200 gms unsalted butter
100 gms confectioners sugar
1 lg. egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. honey
220 gms all-purpose flour
2 tablespoon of Black Tea. (About 4 or 5 tea bags)
Pinch of salt
Egg white for brushing outside of cookie dough.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until pale in color and light and fluffy. Add in the egg yolk, mix to combine. Add in vanilla and honey, mix until smooth.
  • Add all the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated but do not overmix as to prevent a tough dough. Turn the dough out onto a wax paper and roll into a 2 inch log. Wrap the log and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge, Brush the outside of the cookie log with egg white, and cut slices that are about 1/2 Inch Thick. Place them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake for about 10 – 12 minutes, or until the centers are set, rotating the trays halfway through the cooking time. Let them sit on the trays for at least 10 minutes to cool, and then transfer them to cooling racks.
To decorate just melt 100 gms of Milk Chocolate and dip a cookie. 
It supposed to be "Cameo Cookies" I did the Cameo Detail with white chocolate and a little brush but without the photos i can't explain very well how i made the Cameo details. So i feel so bad about it.
