Tender and flaky with a hit of sweetness, these Tea Biscuits are divine.


  • 4 cups flour
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk


  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in chocolate chips.
  2. Beat 3 eggs, evaporated milk and vanilla in a medium bowl. Add flour mixture all at one time. Stir with a fork to form a soft dough. Turn dough onto well floured surface. Knead dough 6 to 8 times.
  3. Pat dough to 3/4 inch thickness. Cut dough with floured 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter. Transfer cut dough to lightly greased baking sheet.
  4. Beat remaining egg and milk in small bowl. Brush egg/milk mixture over tops of biscuits. Bake at 400 degrees F for 14 to 16 minutes or until golden brown.
