Chamomile Tea-infused Cookies for When You’re Feeling Yucky – Cookie of the Week

Chamomile Tea infused Cookies for When Youre Feeling Yucky   Cookie of the Week chamomile tea cookies

 

Today I had a bad, bad fever. I slept until 4:36 in the afternoon. So, in other words, that is why I haven’t posted any cookie recipes until now. I decided to go with the sick theme and put a cookie inspired by the best tea for your favorite invalid: Chamomile tea. It’s mild, calming, soothes anxiety, and makes you feel loved. So even if you’re not sick, you’ll absolutely love these cookies which pair perfectly with a piping hot mug of your best brew. (NOTE: You can grind the tea leaves in a small food processor or with a mortar and pestle. Just empty the tea bags into your blending machine of choice and presto!).
