TBS: Lady Grey Vegan Shortbread

A classic Earl Grey is nothing without a lovely biscuit to compliment it (or so our grandmothers told us) and everyone knows this duo is all the more perfect when shortbread is introduced to the equation. Here’s our super simple recipe for a buttery vegan shortbread with a special twist: lavender!


1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 + 3/4 cups flour
1 cup chilled vegan margarine (Earth Balance is our fave)
1 + 1/2 teaspoons Tibetan lavender tea
2 tablespoons lady grey tea
-steep in 1/4 cup of boiling water for 3 minutes
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/4 cup corn starch


Preheat oven to 350 degrees celsius

Step One:
Blend chilled butter, lavender tea flowers, icing sugar and corn starch in a food processor.

Step Two:
Add half the flour and all the lady grey and pulse gently until you achieve a crumbly texture.

Step Three
Blend in remainder of flour until dough balls and becomes smooth.

Step Four:
Roll into a log, wrap in wax paper, and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Step Five:
Cut dough into 1/2 inch rings and place on un-greased cookie sheet.

Step Six:
Bake for 15 minutes or until the shortbread is just golden at the bottom edge.

Step Seven:
Cool and enjoy with a hot cuppa Lady Grey tea and come good company!
