Easy to Make Russian Tea Cookies

I came up with these cookies while thinking about Russian tea!

Ingredients: 8 cookies

Cake flour
90 g
30 g
Vegetable oil
2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
Tea bags
1 teaspoon
as needed


1. If the jam looks a bit runny, put it in the microwave to evaporate some of the excess moisture off. It should come out thick enough to spread easily. Preheat the oven to 170℃. Sift the cake flour. Grind the tea leaves up in a mill or mortar and pestle.
2. Add the milk and vegetable oil to a bowl and mix well.
3. Add the pre-sifted flour to the bowl and mix well again. Then add the tea.
4. Mix everything together with a rubber spatula until the mixture comes together.
5. Add the mixture to a piping bag.
6. Pipe the mixture out onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 15 minutes in an oven preheated to 180℃.
7. Once baked, cool on a wire rack.
8. After they've cooled a little, sandwich the cookie halves together with the jam.
9. You can use whatever jam you like! Orange jam or milk jams also go well these cookies.
