Teabag Cookies


Well-known member
I found funny looking cookie recipe:


  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 1/3 cup flour
  • thick white thread embroidery cotton type
  • labels
  • chocolate
In a large bowl, add the softened butter cut into pieces and work until mixture resembles ointment.

Add the icing sugar and mix vigorously with a wooden spoon until it becomes creamy and smooth.

Add the egg yolk and mix thoroughly until everything is well incorporated.

Sift the flour and salt and gradually incorporate just enough to form a paste with no trace of flour.

Form a ball with the dough, coarsely crush in disk and wrap with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge to firm up for a minimum of a half hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F/175 C. Line a baking sheet with with parchment paper.

Lightly flour the work surface. Spread the dough to a thickness of about 5 mm.

Using a template (a tea bag shape reproduced on cardboard), cut out biscuits and place them on the cookie sheet about an inch apart from each other

With the tip of a small straw, make a hole about 1 cm from the top of the cookie.

If possible, refrigerate the cookies on the baking sheet for twenty minutes: it will allow them not to spread and retain their shape.

Bake (center position) and bake the cookies about 15 to 18 minutes: the cookies should remain quite pale with gold trim (the bottom should be light brown). Let cool 5 minutes then using a spatula pour the biscuits on a wire rack and leave until completely cooled.

Assemble the cotton thread and label on each cookie.

Melt chocolate and dip the cookies halfway up and place on a sheet of parchment paper. Allow to dry.
