Buttery Tea Biscuits

If you are looking for a tasty treat to go with a cup of tea or coffee then these little tea biscuits are perfect!
To be quite honest the batter looked almost more tasty to me than when the biscuits were done. I thought the finished biscuits looked quite bland. I really thought this would be a failed recipe, however thankfully I was wrong. They are very light, soft inside, and a little crunchy on the outside. It may be good to mention that they are not overly sweet either. They were very quick to whip up and the ingredients are ones that most people would already have on hand. 


1/2 cup butter softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg whisked
1/3 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

Note: I used whole wheat flour. I am sure white flour would make these even more tasty. I would have used white however I had none on hand and really want to use up the whole wheat. 


1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  

2. Add eggs, milk, and vanilla. Mix well. 

3. Stir in flour and baking powder. Mix well. 

4. Place in refrigerator to chill. 

5. Roll out onto a floured board to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes adding more flour if needed. 
 Place on a greased cookie sheet. 

6. Bake at 350 F (175 C) for 10 minutes or until bottom begin to turn a golden brown color. 

I ended up with a total of 15 heart shapes and 8 small round shaped ones. 

I really enjoyed these with a hot cup of coffee. I had one heart and two round ones. 

Hope that if you try this recipe you will enjoy them as much as I do! 

Thank you for stopping by :)
