I’ve been planning a tea party for some time now and saw a picture of some tea bag cookies on a blog called Le Pétrin that I thought were cute, but it was in French, which I sadly cannot read. That’s when I decided to figure it out myself because I really wanted to include these at my party.
I found some shortbread mix in the baking aisle and decided that would be a great base for these cookies. I made a little tea pot tag in Photoshop and tied them onto the finished cookies with some thread. They were a total hit at my party!
- 1 package Betty Crocker Shortbread Cookie Mix or a recipe from scratch (and whatever ingredients are needed to makes these)
- 1 package of chocolate melting candy
- Make the cookie dough according to the instructions of your mix or recipe and roll it out on a floured surface to 1/4 inch thick.
- Cut cookies into tea bag shapes by making rectangles and cutting the corners off one short side.
- Poke a hole near the top of the cookie with a wooden skewer.
- Bake as directed on your cookie mix package or recipe.
- After they are done baking, let cool for a minute or two on the baking sheet, and then move them to a cooling rack.
- If the holes have closed up a little, re-poke the holes with the skewer while the cookies are still warm.
- Once the cookies are fully cooled, melt some chocolate in a mug in 15-30 second increments until its fully melted. If the chocolate is too thick, add a little cooking oil to thin it.
- Dip the cookies about a third of the way into the chocolate and place on a baking sheet covered in wax paper.
- Place in the fridge until the chocolate sets up.
- Create a tag on your computer or just cut up little blank squares and punch a small hole in it for string.
- Once the cookies are fully chilled, tie the string with the tag attached to the cookie.
