There’s a chance you’re totally sick of me going on and on about our girly tea party, and for that I apologize. But bear with me because I promise that this is one recipe post you’re going to want to keep right there in your back pocket – nice and close. It’s good. Like, totally classy, all sorts of sophisticated, absolutely perfect in every sense of the word type good. My friend Gaby actually made them for our event, and it was all I could do to not hunt her down and force her to give me all of her tips and tricks. Because not only is the cookie itself delish, but the whole concept makes my heart all sorts of happy. With beautiful photos from Heidi Lau, grab all the details below.
Combine your vanilla sugar packet, powdered sugar together and hazlenuts together.
Dump the flour on a (clean) counter and make a well in the middle. Plunk the butter, egg and sugar mixture in the centre of the well and combine using your fingers until well combined.
Roll the dough out so it's 1/4 inch thick.
Grab a square teabag and trace around it onto a piece of cardstock. Cut around the cardstock to create a tea bag template. Then, using a pizza cutter and your teabag cutter, slice your dough into tea bag shapes.
Using a wood dowel, poke a hole all the way through one side. Bake on a parchment lined cooking sheet for 10 minutes, or until slightly golden at the edges.
Cool completely on a wire rack. Once cooled, string a string through the hole with a tiny tag and note (of your choice) taped to the opposite end. Ice as desired and enjoy!
