Much as I agree with the co-founders of T Ching about putting sweeteners in tea (never), I must admit that now and again I like a cookie or a slice of cake with my afternoon cuppa. With that in mind, I have been on the search for a confection that complements – but does not overwhelm – the tea I am drinking.
To align with those criteria, the sweet must be subtle. Shortening based goo – also known as that white stuff between the layers of an Oreo cookie – is not welcome here. The texture needs to be snappy and crisp to hold up against those of you who like to dip your cookie into the tea.
Eureka! I’ve found it! Look no further than Kedem Tea Biscuits. I found them in the kosher section of the local supermarket.
