    Tea Spheres - Recipe

    These are heavenly little spheres that provide layers of delicate flavor. They are wonderful year round, and make a perfect addition to a cup of your favourite tea.

    Ingredients:

    (Makes 20 spheres)

    -1 cup all purpose flour
    -1 1/2 cups walnuts, finely chopped (the smaller the better)
    -3 Tablespoons sugar
    -3/4 teaspoon cardamom
    -1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or paste
    -2 1/2 teaspoons rose water
    -1/4 (1 stick) pound butter, room temperature
    -1 cup powdered sugar
    *Note: You can find rose water at specialty stores. To make the spheres without it, omit the rosewater and increase the vanilla to 1 teaspoon.

    Method:

    1. Preheat the oven to 300°F. In a large bowl, combine flour, walnuts, sugar, and cardamom.
    2. Add the vanilla extract, rose water, and butter in small pieces. With your hands (think of it as a luxurious hand treatment), combine everything together until it resembles a coarse meal.
    3. Form the dough into 1 inch balls by gently squeezing the dough together and rolling it between your hands. Place the dough balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Next, place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for 35 minutes.
    4. Once the spheres are finished baking, carefully transfer to a cooling rack to cool slightly. Place the powdered sugar on a plate for rolling. Once the spheres have cooled but are still warm to the touch, roll the spheres in the sugar until evenly coated. Return the spheres to the cooling rack and allow to cool completely. Once the spheres have cooled completely, roll them once again in the powdered sugar for a second coat.

    Serve, eat, enjoy!

    I made these with almonds (I had them on hand) and they were really quite nice. I bumped up the rose flavor with a drop or two of rose essential oil.
