Ted Lasso has won our hearts ever since it hit the screens in 2020 and still holds an important place in our hearts as it enters its third season. However, one lingering question remains: How does one make Ted’s biscuits with the boss?

In the series, the charismatic football coach from Kansas also wins the hearts of his colleagues in Richmond with more than just his upbeat attitude and folksy wisdom. He brings them cookies — flavored butter cookies. Even more wonderful, the rectangular cookies are inside pink cardboard boxes.

When the series first came out, recipes flooded the internet but none were the original recipe. When the second cycle started a few months ago the production people finally gave the official recipe for Ted Lasso cookies and we couldn’t think of a better time to make them than now.

Tips for making Ted Lasso’s cookies

An 8×8 or 9×9 metal pan is perfect for this recipe. He noted that the size of the pan will affect the baking time — the larger the pan, the thinner the cookie and the shorter the baking time. For an 8×8 pan you will need about an hour of baking. As soon as they come out of the oven, cut the cookies while they are still warm.

What you will need:

  • 225 gr. unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

How to make it:

  1. Place the butter in the bowl of a mixer and leave it at room temperature until it softens. Spread enough butter in a small square pan.
  2. Beat the butter on high speed until fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. With the mixer running, gradually add 3/4 cup of the powdered sugar and continue beating until the mixture is white and fluffy.
  3. Stop the mixer. Sift 2 cups of all-purpose flour into the bowl, then add 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt. Blend on low speed until smooth.
  4. Transfer to the pan and spread to an even thickness. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. At the same time, preheat the oven to 180°C. Cut the dough into rectangles or squares and bake until the surface is golden brown and the center is firm, 45 to 60 minutes. Let cool completely. Re-cut if needed before serving or put in a pink tin to give away.
