Rose Petal Shortbread & Tea!


175g Plain Flour
125g Butter 
50g Caster sugar 
1 tsp Rose water
Rose petals 


Icing sugar 
Rose water 
Rose petals 


Heart cutter 
Rolling pin 
Baking tray 
Parchment paper 


Preheat your oven to 180 (fan 160 or gas mark 4) 
1. Put in a bowl, flour, sugar and butter, adding the rose water and petals through mixing with your hands to form a dough.

2. Roll the dough out in one direction to the desired thickness and cut out hearts or other shape with the cutter, keep forming a new ball and rolling out the excess until you have none left, or very little. 

3. Flour a baking tray or line with parchment paper and lay the hearts on. 

4. Bake for 20 minutes, longer if you want a darker colour, but keep your eye on them! 

5. Take out of the oven and put on a cooling rack. Mix icing sugar with rose water and spoon onto the middle of the biscuits sprinkling with rose petals. 

Make a cup of tea and enjoy! I like to have a cup of lavender earl grey from my London Tea Club subscription!
