My Tea Party Menu consists of,
1. Tea, courtesy the lovely folks at Vibe Village supporting my Veganism, have sent me lots of Tetley Soy Tea bags to try out.
2. Vegan Shrewsbury Biscuits, recipe follows.
3. Vegan Flower Cookies, these are a tribute to my mum who used to painstakingly make them every time I asked for them.
4. Vegan Snow Bundt Cake with Strawberry glaze.
Vegan Shrewsbury Biscuits
This is an old recipe from a newspaper cutting which, my mother had collected and pasted into a book. I veganised it by dropping the eggs and butter.
1 cup Self raising Flour
3/4 cup Sugar (powdered)
1/2 cup Non dairy salt free spread (I used Flora)
2 Tablespoons silken tofu ( a blended fine uniform paste)
1 Tablespoon lemon zest (grated finely)
Cream the tofu and margarine till well mixed. Add the mashed tofu and beat well.
Rub the flour into this mixture alongwith the Lemon zest.
Knead till you get a firm dough without cracks.
Preheat the oven on fan forced setting to 175 degrees C and cover a large cookie tray with grease proof paper.
Flour a flat surface and roll out the dough to 1/2 an inch thickness.
