I’m very much into tea recently…not sure you have noticed…have you?

Well, more than into tea itself I’m very much into the cookies that pair it…Last experiment I did resulted into this tea-bag-shaped cookies. Definitely an original idea to space things up a bit and to offer something a bit extravagant to your guest for tea time.

Here is how you make them.

Ingredients (makes about 30):

  • 250 g all purpose flour
  • 110 g powdered sugar
  • 100 g unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 80 g dark chocolate

In a bowl combine flour and butter

Next up, roll out the dough into a rectangular shape, about 7 mm thick. Cut out small rectangles (3*2 cm)
