Lemon cookies shaped into tea bags are a fun little treat to enjoy this winter.
They are really fun to make and look way better than your regular Christmas cookies! They can also be a great Christmas gift that will definitely impresses the recipient.
Drinking tea in the coziness of your home and snacking on these delicious cookies sound so good. Because what is tea without a great cookie?! And these are really practical to dunk into some hot tea or cacao.
They are really crunchy, lemon gives them amazing flavour and the chocolate covered part makes them irresistible. We used lemon zest and lemon juice for the cookies, so they are bursting with lemon flavour. These lemon cookies are the perfect afternoon treat. They are also really easy to make and don’t take a lot of time.
We are huge lemon lovers, so we really enjoy making lemon desserts. They taste so refreshing! You can also check out our recipe for amazing raw lemon cake.
Reducing single use plastic
We covered the dough with over reusable lids when refrigerating it, to reduce our single use plastic waste, since we used to cover it with plastic foil.
