This is a recipe for delicious crunchy tea biscuits which are easy to make and even easier to eat, you have to try the recipe, they are very tasty. After baking, your home will smell wonderful, even the next day. I love the smell of baked cookies mixed with cinnamon. I baked these yesterday and when I got up this morning, my home smelled like in my granny's kitchen :)
tea biscuits

  • 200 g butter softened at room temperature or lard
  • 2 eggs
  • 150 g sugar
  • 350 g flour (you can put half wholewheat flour)
  • 1-2 tsp ginger in powder
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 sachet baking powder
  1. Beat eggs with sugar and add the butter.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients, mix with a mixer, then knead the dough by hand shortly to unite. Put it in a nylon bag and let rest in refrigerator for half an hour. 
  3. Divide the dough into 8 or more parts, size doesn't matter. Roll out a crust with a thickness of 5 mm from each piece and make forms. The dough is divided into more parts because it is impossible to roll out crust from the whole dough with the same thickness. The remaining dough which remains from removing the forms is kneaded again.
  4. Line up cookies in a pan coated with baking paper.
  5. Bake in preheated oven at 200 to 220 Celsius degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. If your dough is thinner, the baking time is shorter.
  6. After baking, when cool, sprinkle cookies with powdered sugar or decorate as desired, I never add anything later because they are delicious as they are.
  7. Keep covered in a box, I have a tin box that I only keep for such cookies.
