If you love French Earl Grey and you love biscuits then you'll love this recipe.

The addition of the tea leave brings out the flavours so beautifully. This biccie is sure to be on heavy rotation.
125g organic butter, softened
¼ cup caster sugar
1 organic egg yolk
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup almond meal
¼ cup corn flour
2 tsp Gaia Botanica French Earl Grey, finely chopped
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
50g dark chocolate, melted
Flakey salt (we use Murray River)
Preheat oven to 160 °C. Line 2 baking trays with silicone baking sheet (or baking paper). Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until creamy and pale. Add the egg yolk and beat until combined. Add flour, cornflour, tea leaves, and vanilla and stir until the mixture just forms.
Portion the dough into tablespoon size biscuits and place on baking trays. Bake for 15 mins or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. Dip the biscuits in the melted chocolate. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
