Tea Bag Cookies

I’m very much into tea recently…not sure you have noticed…have you?

Well, more than into tea itself I’m very much into the cookies that pair it…Last experiment I did resulted into this tea-bag-shaped cookies. Definitely an original idea to space things up a bit and to offer something a bit extravagant to your guest for tea time.

Here is how you make them.

Ingredients (makes about 30):

  • 250 g all purpose flour
  • 110 g powdered sugar
  • 100 g unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 80 g dark chocolate

In a bowl combine flour and butter


and crumble it with a fork or your hands until it reassemble coarse meal


Sift in the powdered sugar


add the egg yolks and vanilla extract


and mix until all the ingredients are combined and you get a smooth dough. Wrap it up into plastic paper and refrigerate for about 30 min


Next up, roll out the dough into a rectangular shape, about 7 mm thick. Cut out small rectangles (3*2 cm)


then with a knife remove the 2 top corners


and using a tooth stick (or chopstick), make a small holl in the top-center


Bake your tea-bag cookies at 180 for about 15 min or until the edges starts to get golden. Remove and let them cool down


In a microwave proof bowl melt the chocolate


and dip in each cookie about 1 cm deep


place on parchment paper and let it stand until chocolate is set


Now, grab some string and use it to hang off each tea bag your logo/picture/ guest name Serve with your preferred tea selection


Definitely a great idea for an afternoon with your girlfriends and friends
