Tea Bag Cookies – Tea Time
Easy Tea Cookies Recipe
- 1 cup of softened butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 2 cups of flour
- Pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract using a mixer or whisk just until the ingredients come together. Be careful not to over mix.
- In a separate bowl mix flour, salt and baking powder.
- Next fold your dry ingredients into the wet ingredients using a spatula. Divide the dough in half.
- Wrap each half in a plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for about an hour. Once the dough is ready to go preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Roll out your dough and cut the cookies to look like a tea bag, using a paper straw poke a hole on the top.
- Bake them for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
- Melt the chocolate chips in a heat proof bowl either in a double-boiler or the microwave.
- Once the cookies are cool and the chocolate is melted, dip the end of your cookies into the chocolate, then transfer to a parchment sheet to allow the chocolate to harden.
These were inspired by the lovely Tea Time bridal shower stationery collection. The minute I saw it I knew I should make these.
Lastly cut some ribbon and place it through the hole of your cookies making a little knot on top. That’s it! You now have created the most adorable tea bag cookies to go with your Tea Time party! Aren’t they lovely?
