Honestly, I don’t even know what a “tea biscuit” is or even if it is anything. But I thought it sounded pretty and fancy so I went with it.
How pretty are these? Can’t you just imagine ladies sipping their tea and eating these with their crumpets? And speaking of crumpets. What the heck is a crumpet?! Maybe I need to figure that out and make those sometime.
Anyway, these would be perfect for a bridal or baby shower, or a luncheon, or even Valentine’s Day.
I call these a biscuit instead of a cookie because they really do have that sort of texture. Almost like a short bread. Sort of crumbly and flaky and not too sweet. Paired with the sweet and tart lemon curd it is a perfect combination.
