The great flavor of Thai Tea makes these cookies irresistible!
I love Thai Tea Bobo, I often brew it at home. Sometimes I head to a local boba shop and sip some there. Either way, it’s delicious in my book!
I recently came across “instant” Thai tea. I was curious if I’d like it, and I do it’s not as strong as the brewed version but it’s super easy to make and fun to have on a trip, you only need boiling water to make it and a package of instant Thai Tea Mix, it has cream and sugar added to it.
I talk about my love of boba tea in this post.
Curiosity got the best of me and I just had to see if I could make that great Thai Tea in cookie form, and voila…
they are so yummy and cut too!
And that COLOR is just perfect, don’t you think!
Have you had Thai Tea? I love going out for Thai food, there is a place nearby and I love seeing the tables lined with delicious food and Thai Tea, all pretty and orange and swirly! I rarely leave there without having one.
If you don’t find the Instant Thai Tea Mix locally it’s available online HERE.
Roll and cut out cookie dough with your favorite cookie cutter. I used a 1-1/2 inch round cutter it has both a smooth edge and a scalloped edge. I liked the scallop edged cookies best.
I can’t help it I love a cute scallop edge!
These cookies bake quickly, they are done in 7 minutes. The cookie dough does not need refrigerating, it does not spread, it’s a great cookie recipe!
