Vanilla Rooibos Tea Cookies
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, or just love to use tea in your baking, we’ve got the perfect recipe for you! Our Vanilla and Rooibos Tea Cookies are a favourite that we know you’ll love too. These cookies are made with pantry staples and our Nerada Vanilla and Rooibos Tea. They’re simple to make and simple to enjoy.

INGREDIENTS
  • 5x Nerada Organic Rooibos & Vanilla Tea Bags
  • 150g butter, softened
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1x egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 2 cups plain flour

METHOD

  • Heat a small pan over medium heat. Remove the tea leaves from the tea bags and add to pan. Toast for 2 minutes, shaking the pan often. Remove from heat once the tea is fragrant.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars for 1-2 minutes, or until smooth and well combined. Beat in egg and the vanilla bean paste.
  • Stir in flour and tea leaves.
  • Roll your cookie dough into a log shape. Wrap it in cling film and transfer to the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180°C and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  • Remove log from fridge and cut into 1cm thick slices. Place cookies 3cm apart on prepared baking trays.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, or until cookies start to brown. Leave to cool on trays for five minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to completely cool.
