It’s a sad truth that I really, really hate tea but adore all tea related paraphernalia – clearly the cutest of all the hot beverages. So in celebration of tea (the concept rather than the actual consumption) here’s a charming teabag cookie recipe to enjoy with any hot bevy of choice. Coffee drinkers welcome.To make the cookies you’ll need:

2 cups plain flour

1/2 cup icing sugar mixture (sifted)

200g butter (chopped)

2 tablespoons cold waterTo decorate you’ll need:

Some decorative paper (I used patterned stationary)

Drinking straw

Bakers Twine

Scissors

Sticky tape

GlueTry it yourself:

Preheat the oven to 180° or 160° fan-forced.

Combine the flour, icing sugar and chopped butter in a food processor – process in short bursts until the texture resembles breadcrumbs.

Add the cold water and continue to process until the mixture combines into moist clumps. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead the dough into a ball.

Roll out the cookie dough to around 1cm thick and cut out your shapes. If you happen to have a teabag cookie cutter handy – bonus! Failing that, just trace around an actual teabag with a sharp knife. Use a straw to create the hole that you’ll tie your teabag string to later.

Place the cookies on a baking tray (lined with baking paper) and bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for an additional 10 minutes.

Create the teabag label from a rectangle of coloured paper – I used some patterned Post-It notes I had on hand. Tie the baking twine through the cookie hole and attach the other end to the coloured paper with sticky tape. Fold the paper in half and glue in place.For some extra sweetness, dip your cookies in melted chocolate to create the illusion of the actual tea within the teabag. Allow to dry fully on a cooling rack before decorating.
