One of my fondest memories as a child was the joy I felt getting to bake sugar cookies with my mom, decorate them, and then the excitement of FINALLY getting to set out those cookies for Santa. I can still smell the cookies and feel the giddiness when I close my eyes.
Needless to say I think Sugar Cookies are a Christmas staple, but it doesn’t have to be all about cookies. What about a frosted sugar cookie tea? YES! For real, this is one of the best, coziest teas I have ever made. Even if you don’t like tea, that’s okay! This is made with herbal tea and has no after taste, or tea like bitterness. This is truly a treat for everyone to enjoy!
I have been buying this tea for at least eight years. I cannot have a Christmas without it! If you buy one new tea this season, I highly recommend this one for sure!
Creamy Frosted Sugar Cookie Tea
- 2 bags of sugar cookie sleigh ride tea
- 8 oz of boiling water
- 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 tbsp frosted sugar cookie creamer
- 1/8 tsp butter extract
- tiny dash of nutmeg
Steep the tea bags in boiling water for about 4 minutes. Meanwhile, in a mug combine the milk, creamer, extract and nutmeg stirring well or shaking it up to make it foamy. Slowly add the hot tea!
This taste fantastic with cookies, scones, or any Christmas treat!
Chemist Tips: extract is the BEST thing to add for flavor. This butter extract creates that true cookie taste. If you don’t have this, substitute vanilla extract 🙂
The best way to enjoy this sugar cookie tea is at night, cozied up on the couch watching your favorite Christmas movie! This is the perfect after dinner treat because it has absolutely no caffeine and very little calories. It has about 25 calories total depending on what type of creamer you use…I mean you can’t beat that right.
Herbal tea is so soothing and comforting, and is the perfect relaxation technique in my opinion. Remember all these awesome autumn teas I shared a few months ago? Well, keep an eye out because I have a great post coming up on all my favorite Christmas and winter teas 🙂
I am sharing this wonderful recipe over on Alanna’s blog today and she is sharing another AMAZING drink recipe, Spiked Caramel Apple Cider. Doesn’t that sound like the best thing ever? These are both perfect recipes for the holidays! Enjoy!
