Kids love these and so do the grownups.

Ingredients (serves 7 | makes 15 )

  • 1 Cup Unsalted butter
  • 1 Cup Granulated sugar
  • 3 Cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 180° C.
  2. In the bowl of your mixer cream butter and sugar until smooth, at least 3 minutes.
  3. Beat in extracts and egg.
  4. In a separate bowl combine baking powder with flour and add a little at a time to the wet ingredients. The dough will be very stiff. If it becomes too stiff for your mixer turn out the dough onto a countertop surface.
  5. Wet your hands and finish off kneading the dough by hand. Divide into workable batches, roll out onto a floured surface and cut. You want these cookies to be on the thicker side (closer to 1/4 inch rather than 1/8).
  6. Roll the dough and cut into teabag shape and make a hole at the top.
  7. Bake at 180 for 8-10 minutes. Let it cool on the cookie sheet until firm enough to transfer to a cooling rack.
  8. Thread a string through the hole, use some sticky paper or teabag tag. Tie the loose end, dip them in melted chocolate and let it cool. Enjoy with tea or coffee.

  • If there were a way to infuse the chocolate with tea, this would be perfect!

    Girls tea party


  • These are super cute


  • Very good idea fir recycling things


  • I’m loving them as a repurpose for those tea bags once used!


  • I bet the children will enjoy making these. I think some of these cookies presented in a cellophane bag and tied with a ribbon would make a lovely gift for a child to give to their grandparents.


  • What a fantastic idea! I absolutely love it. When I saw them I thought what a clever cookie ???? I’m definitely going to try these out.


  • They just look too good to eat nice and easy recipe thanks again


  • Well don’t these look just adorable!


  • Love seeing different things. Well done! ????


  • I wonder what Lipton’s reaction to this recipe is. They’re getting free advertising even if the photo is a bit misleading


  • What a fun idea for morning tea (or any time). I’d serve them with coffee and watch the expressions of bewilderment on people’s faces


  • A very interesting idea and look. Idea for a morning tea.


  • A very cute and clever idea – perfect for dunking!
