Prep 15 minutes, cook 14 minutes
150 g (1/3 pound ) softened butter
½ cup (4 oz) brown sugar
½ tsp vanilla essence
1 tbs honey
1 free range egg
1 ¼ cup (1/3 pound) self raising flour
1/3 cup chamomile flowers (or 6 chamomile tea bags)
Preheat oven to 150C (300F) and line a baking tray with grease proof paper and spray with oil.
Crush the chamomile flowers with your fingers into a bowl (or open the tea bags and pour in a bowl) and set aside.
Cream butter, sugar and vanilla essence until light and creamy (1-2 minutes). Add the honey and egg and mix lightly to combine.
Add the flour and chamomile and mix lightly until it forms a soft dough.
Drop teaspoons of mixture on the tray, allowing room for dough to spread. Flatten each spoonful with a fork that has been dipped in water.
Place in the oven for 12-14 minutes.
Allow to cool and serve with your favourite tea and sit back and mindfully savour the sweet taste!
