I Tried Ted Lasso's Biscuit Recipe—and It's Just as Delightful as the Show

It's incredibly easy to make, but I have some thoughts.

I was a little late to the game with Ted Lasso, but I've fallen in love with the football coach and his plucky band of soccer—er, football—players. Like a lot of Lasso fans, I loved Ted's daily visits to Rebecca's office, aka his "biscuits with the boss."

So I was thrilled when The Ted Lasso crew released the shortbread recipe they use for said biscuits–and realized they're incredibly easy to make. (It's been all over TikTok and the internet ever since.) Odds are you already have everything you need in the kitchen right now—it's just 2 sticks of butter, a pinch of salt, ¾ cup confectioner's sugar, and 2 cups of flour.

  1. Cream the butter until it's light and fluffy (about 2 minutes), add the confectioner's sugar, and beat until even lighter and fluffier.
  2. Add the salt and flour, and mix until just combined. (The dough will be pretty dense!)
  3. Pat the dough into a buttered 8-inch or 9-inch square pan, and let it chill in the fridge for a half-hour. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 300 F.
  4. Pre-slice the biscuits into squares or rectangles, and bake until golden and firm at the center. (That took about 50 minutes for me.)

The Ted Lasso biscuits were very rich and buttery, and simply divine fresh out of the oven with a cup of tea.

You could also try dressing them up a little with some herbs (rosemary or lavender would be great), or a teaspoon of vanilla extract or cinnamon. You could also turn it into something more decadent by dipping one edge of them in dark chocolate and chopped nuts. (This would make a great homemade gift for your favorite Ted Lasso fan—packed in a pink box just like on the show.)But honestly, my whole family was in love with them just the way they are—like they are about Ted Lasso, too.
