Tea bag cookies

It’s getting really cold outside and autumn is slowly turning into winter. During these cold winter nights I love to stay home, sit on the couch, crawl under blankets, have a nice cup of tea or a glass of wine :), and enjoy a good movie or television series. What are your favorite television series? My top 5 television series are:

  1. Downton abbey,
  2. Once upon a time,
  3. Merlin,
  4. Dr. Who
  5. Sherlock Holmes (the one with Benedict Cumberbatch, although Elementary is very good too!)

Last week a new series started on Netflix, the Crown. Together with my friend Margot, I’ve already watched 5 episodes and it has every potential to become my new favorite! How to make the perfect cookies for a girls night in? You’ll see in the recipe below.

Tea bag cookies

Serves about 20, takes about 1,5 hour

What you need


  • 125 g dairy butter
  • 75 g powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 135 g flower
  • extra flour for dusting
  • 200 g pure chocolate


  • Plastic foil
  • Baking paper
  • Rolling pin
  • Strings
  • Tea bag tags


  1. Knead soft butter, powdered sugar, vanilla sugar, salt and flour until you have a smooth dough.
  2. Wrap the dough in plastic foil and let it rest in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celcius, line a baking sheet with baking paper.
  4. Dust the counter with flour and roll the dough till 5 cm thick. Using a knife, cut rectangles out of the dough. Cut the top corners of each rectangle to get a tea bag shape. Use the tip of an icing bag, to make a hole where you can add a tag.
  5. Place the cookies on the sheet with baking paper, and bake them for about 15 minutes until golden brown.
  6. In the meanwhile, let the cookies cool. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie, then dip in the cookies and place them on baking paper. Let the chocolate solidify, you can speed this up by placing the cookies in the fridge.
  7.  Attach the strings and tags to the cookies and you’re done!

Tip: After dipping the cookies in chocolate you can dip them again in for example chopped nuts or edible glitter.
