Lemon Tea Biscuits

These 'freezer' biscuits are novel in that they are made with Lemon Flavored tea. The TMX is perfect for grinding the tea.  The original recipe did not suggest that they would be suitable to freeze,  but I tried it and they froze beautifully.
makes 30+ biscuits.
Set oven 350 o C FF

4 teaspoons of lemon flavored tea. ( I used 4 tea bags of Lemon Twist, Twinnings)
1/2 cup sugar
240 butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons of Lemon Extract, ( I used food safe Lemon Oil )
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
2 cups of plain flour

Grind tea and sugar, speed 10 / 20 seconds
Add butter and mix, speed 4 / 20 seconds
Add salt, lemon Extract and Vanilla and mix, speed 4 / 10 seconds
Fold in flour on REVERSE.
Look in the hole in the top and stop machine once incorporated.
Roll into 2 logs.
Firm up in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Slice of discs about 1 cm thick and bake for 15/20 minutes.

Or you can freeze logs to use later.
