I’ve talked before about my love for tea. I think it’s become somewhat of a ritual for me during exams: I put the kettle on to boil, I waste time doing something fun, and when my tea is steeped and ready that means it’s time to stop goofing off and get to work. (Most of the time, this routine works for me, don’t judge!)
With the end of exams around the corner, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I thought I’d share these cute cookies with you guys!
My super-cool and lovely friend Kaitlin provided the inspiration for these little tea bag cookie — thanks girlie! Since I was already making a batch of sugar cookies at the time, that’s what I used for these ones, but how much fun would it be to actually make tea-flavoured dough for these ones? (Earl Grey, anyone? Martha Stewart also has a recipe for green tea shortbread that I’ve been wanting to try…any suggestions??)
I cut out the tea-bag shapes free hand, and made a little hole at the top of each one with a sterilized nail. Once they were baked I tied on their little tea labels and dipped the bottom of each one in melted chocolate — these are perfect for dipping in your tea. If you want to save these for your next tea party (or late night study session…) just layer them in a container with parchment paper between each layer, and you can freeze them for a couple of months!
Happy Sunday/Study Day!
