Fleurs de Geisha Tea Shortbread Cookies

. June 1, 2010

A few weeks ago I was the happy winner of a contest organised by the blog " Le monde de Garance". I won a dainty "Washi Caddy of Fleurs de Geisha Tea" from "Le Palais des Thés" . Every spring, in Japan, the appearance of the cherry blossom is an eagerly awaited event. Inspired by the Japanese tradition of Hanami - the name given to the contemplation of these trees - Fleur de Geisha tea is a blend of green Japanese tea, subtly scented with cherry blossom.

To celebrate here is my recipe of Fleur de Geisha Tea Shortbread Cookies

Ingredients: 25 g of butter- 50g flour- 25g of corn flour- 50 g of icing sugar-  1 tsp of tea
Makes about 12

Preheat the oven at 350°F. In a food processor, mix together the sugar, flour and tea. Add the butter, diced and mix again until smooth. Flatten the dough on  a floured surface. Cut with your favorite cookie shapes. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. You could place them in the fridge for about 30 minutes if you can't work the dough! Bake your cookies for about 12 minutes until they are lightly browned on the edges. Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!

Ils sont tellement délicieux ces sablés "Fleur de Geisha" qu'il est très difficile de les conserver et lorsqu'on veut en proposer à des amis la boîte est vide !
