Tea Time Cookies

My family loves tea time! With a steaming cup of chai, you need a few snacks. I love to keep a mix of both savory and sweet snacks to compliment the tea. For the sweet snack, here is a much-loved tea time cookie recipe that is perfect for your afternoon. This buttery, lightly sweetened cookie, is heavenly. I love having it straight out of the oven. It crumbles delicately in your mouth and is a perfect snack to satisfy that afternoon sweet craving 🙂


  • Prep time – 90 minutes
  • Cook time – 10 minutes


  • Unsalted Butter (Softened)
    • For the cookies – 2/3 cup
    • For the baking sheet – 1 tbsp
  • Granulated White Sugar – 1/2 cup
  • Egg Yolks – 2
  • Vanilla Extract – 1 tsp
  • All Purpose Flour – 1.5 cups


  1. Prepare a baking sheet by greasing it with unsalted butter (1 tbsp). Set aside
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the butter (2/3 cup), white sugar, egg yolks, and vanilla extract. Using a mixer, beat at medium speed until the mixture is light and fluffy (keep scraping the sides of the bowl so that everything gets whipped well)
  3. Add the all-purpose flour in smaller portions and beat on low speed until it is well combined with the other ingredients
  4. Once all the dough is well mixed, take 1.5 tbsp of the cookie dough and roll into a ball
  5. Place this on the baking sheet and slightly flatten
  6. Repeat steps 4 to 5 for the remaining cookie dough until all the cookies are evenly spaced on the baking sheet
  7. Place the prepared baking dish in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours
  8. Heat the oven to 375 F. Bake the cold cookies for 9 minutes
  9. Serve warm 🙂
