RECEIPE: Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Teabag Cookies

Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Teabag Cookies
I saw these adorable cookies on Pintrest and had to make them myself! Aren’t they super cute? And they taste pretty yummy!

- Teabag Shaped Cookie Cutter
- Straws
- String
- Printer, Paper, Clipart
- Parchment Paper (optional)
imageTeabag Cookies
 The only difference is that instead of 1 cup of sugar, I added 2/3 cup because I don’t like super sweet desserts. 
After I had the dough rolled out, I used the cookie cutter that I made (coming up in the next tutorial) to cut out teabag shaped cookies and poked a hole in the top using a straw.
Bake them as directed on parchment paper and let them cool completely before dipping them in chocolate.
Teabag Tags
To make the teabag tags, print out mirror images of clipart (like vintage teapots) and fold them. Cut close to the image in the shape of a square.
imageCut a bit of string (about 10 inches long) and tie the ends together in a knot. Add glue to the inside of the tag and sandwich the string between the tag. 
Place the end of the string through the hole at the top of the cookies until you’ve created a loop. Next, put the tag through the loop. 
Dipping Chocolate
For the chocolate, I put about 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips in a cup (or any narrow container) and microwaved it in 30 second intervals, stirring frequently, until the chocolate was completely melted. 
Dip the cookies in the melted chocolate and let it cool.
image(Please note that I didn’t add the tags till after I had dipped the chocolate which was a bad idea because the chocolate kept getting on my hands when I was trying to add the tags so basically, it’s better to add the tags before.) 

They look superduper cute doesn't they? 
Enjoy your cookies yummers!
