Ronald Weasley Chocolate Chip Tea Cookies
Made with areyoutryingtodeduceme’s tea, which is a godsend, and everyone was making cookies with her tea, so here you go. Recipe is pretty much exactly from the Nestle Toll House cookbook, but I changed it up for the tea and changed some things to make it even better. They taste kind of like gingerbread cookies, without being super Christmas-y. They taste like Weasley’s. Without the human body stuff, but really they taste like Weasley’s.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2Tbsp Ronald Weasley Tea (any tea you have works, but it works best with chai teas, or spicy blends.)
- 1 cup Crisco/shortening (original calls for softened butter, which works fine, but Crisco is the best in these cookies.)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped walnuts (I don’t put nuts in mine because ew no.)
Put tea in blender or food processor and blend it into a powder. Sift flour, tea powder, baking soda, and salt together in a small bowl. Beat butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until creamy. Add eggs one at at a time, beating well after each egg. Gradually beat in dry ingredient mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop onto a baking sheet with a cookie scoop or a spoon onto parchment paper or foil on a pan and bake at 375 F for 10 to 12 minutes. Makes 4 dozen cookies.
FUN FACT: Last time the plate had a Texas flag on it, celebrating our staff’s origins, and this time, I brought out the gold for you guys. Literally. This plate is a family heirloom with the gold ring around it made out of gold. UM SO YEAH. You’re Welcome lovelies!
