Golden Baked Cocktail Biscuits with Pear & Earl Grey Tea
The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in this peculiar biscuit, prepared particularly in such a pecuniary method and by the appliance of culinary alchemy, must be intolerabley stupid!
Good old Jane Austin might have adored this exceedingly tolerable fruity and aromatic biscuit and may well have been married by Michaelmas, had she endeavoured to secure the recipe.
For those who love Earl Grey Tea, brought to us by Prime Minister, Earl Grey The Second in the 1830s – this one is for you.
This is a complex recipe which uses fresh pears to give it a fruity sweetness. This recipe has fragrance and interest. Speckled with black tea and a hint of bergamot, it is baked hard and packed quickly to capture the personality and character of this wonderful biscuit.
– You don’t always have to eat Cradocs with cheese. This is a muncher and a great favourite with ladies who ‘take tea.’ If you do fancy some cheese try Golden Baked Cocktail Biscuits with Pear and Earl Grey with any type of goat’s cheese. Mature, hard and feisty or soft, young and milky, this biscuit is great with both. If goat’s cheese is not your thing, try with Stilton or a delicious local creamy white rinded cheese. We have plenty here in Wales. It’s just what jane would have wanted. A marriage made in heaven.
– Golden Baked Cocktail Biscuits with Pear and Earl Grey are perfect for accompanying sorbet and gelato or any creamy deliciousness in a pudding pot!
– Cofffee and Tea-time : luxurious home made texture, light and fine, simple, snappy with initial delicate but building flavours.
– Enjoy with a cocktail or chilled Sherry or Madeira.
