Make biscuits a little more relevant to tea-time appearances with these Le Petrin Cookies resting on the saucer. While tea time may be a well-known tradition, there is still room for improvements and alternations regarding everything from snacks and pouring procedures.
This DIY dessert takes these improvements to heart through the creation of these cleverly constructed cookies. Designed to resemble traditional tea bags in almost every way, hosts and hostesses are sure to trick a guest or two into thinking these treats are realistic in their presentation.
The finished product of the Le Petrin Cookies yields a zesty lemon shortbread, delicately dipped in a thin layer of luscious dark chocolate. In order to fulfill the aesthetic purposes of this pastry, this tutorial suggests cutting holes in the shortbread and attaching legitimate or homemade tea labels. For added enjoyment, pampered tea guests can also dunk these delectable baked goods in their tea, although steeping might not be the best idea.
