A little salty with a hint of sweet, these Rich Tea Biscuits make for the the perfect dunkable snack to go with your afternoon tea. 



  • 1.5 cups (280 ml) all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 4 tsp sugar in the raw (or other vegan sugar)
  • 4.5 tbsp (65 g) vegan butter (cold, keep in fridge until ready to use)
  • 2/3 cups almond milk (or other nut milk)


  1. Preheat oven to 410 F (210 C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. 
  2. Combine dry ingredients into large bowl. Mix together well with fork or whisk. 
  3. Cut the butter into the flour in small slices. Using your hands, gently work the flour into the butter until the mixture becomes crumbly like coarse bread crumbs. 
  4. Pour in the milk, and still using your hands, work the mixture into a smooth dough ball. Once formed, knead the dough briefly for about 2 minutes.  
  5. Roll out dough on a clean, well-floured working surface as thinly as possible. Using a cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out round circles of dough and place on baking sheets. Continue rolling out dough and cutting out biscuits until all the dough is used. Using a fork or pastry docker, gently prick the tops of the biscuits before they enter the oven. 
  6. Place biscuits in the center rack of your oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, depending upon your oven. Serve immediately with a nice cup of tea or place on cooling racks to cool. Store in an air-tight container for 3-5 days. 


  • To make it easier when rolling the dough, cut it in half and work with only half at a time.
