The multi talented Tash from Little BIt of Thyme has allowed me to publish this delicious recipe on my site. If you are not quite up with Tash, she is the photographer of my most recent book, Cooking with Tenina; More great recipes for the Thermomix which is selling like hotcakes around the country, largely due to the most beautiful of pictures thanks to Tash. You should really buy a copy now, as the first print run is sold out and there will more than likely be a wait!
This recipe is Tash’s Thermomix version of the Dutch Spritz! Quick to whip up in either a food processor or a Thermomix these little biscuits are the perfect little morsels to accompany your afternoon tea! (And really, do you need that excuse? I don’t think so!)
- 150 g caster sugar
- 220 g butter, room temperature
- 250 g SR flour
- 1 tsp Vanilla - Extract vanilla extract BUY
Preheat oven to 180ºC and line two trays with baking paper.
Mill sugar 10 sec/speed 9.
Add butter and chop 5 sec/speed 8.
Insert Butterfly and whip for up to 2 min/speed 3-4.
Add flour and vanilla to TM bowl and mix a further 2 min/speed 3-4.
Roll mixture into a long one-inch thick snake then cut into slices about 1 cm wide.
Place on trays, with a little space between each as they will spread!
Bake for approximately 15 minutes until lightly golden. Switch the trays around after a few minutes if need be.
Remove from oven and allow to cool on trays – the Spritz will be soft until cool.
Store in a tin or an air-tight container…that’s if it’s worth it to store…
