Recipe for Rose Pistachio Tea Cookies
300g all-purpose flour
200g unsalted butter, at room temperature
100g granulated sugar
1 tbsp Eternal Garden Tea (ground)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp dried rose petals + more for sprinkling
45g pistachios, roughly chopped
A pinch of salt
1. Combine flour and salt and set aside.
2.Cream butter and sugar in a mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla essence and mix well. Once the mixture is combined, add in the Eternal Garden Tea and chopped pistachios. Wrap dough in cling wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours or overnight to attain a crisp texture.
3. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F) and grease your tray or line it with parchment paper.
4. Roll out your dough on a floured work surface (to prevent it from sticking) to a thickness of 0.5cm. Cut out the dough using a cookie-cutter of your choice and sprinkle dried rose petals on top. Should the dough get sticky, put it back in the refrigerator for a few minutes.
5. Bake cookies for 10 to 15 minutes or until they start to get golden brown around the edges. Once ready, let them cool on a wire rack before serving.
