After a 2 year break, The Crown has returned to Netflix with its newest season! We’ve had this recipe for a while (since our appearance on The List) but haven’t posted it because we were waiting for the new season and that time has come! We’re excited to share our recipe for Royal-Tea Cookies, a recipe fit for royalty!
For those of you unfamiliar, The Crown, “follows the political rivalries and romance of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign and the events that shaped the second half of the 20th century.” In Season 3, “as the 1960s and ’70s unfold, the royal family contends with conflict and betrayal while striving to uphold tradition in the face of an evolving world.”
The inspiration for these cookies comes from the love of tea in England. We actually modified our Tea Leaf Shortbread Cookie recipe to create these cookies. Instead of using a standard black tea, we used Yorkshire Tea, an English tea. Our Royal-Tea cookies are perfect for any tea party, especially one inspired by The Crown!
